Thinking Outside The Box By C. Wright Mills

Decent Essays

The purpose of this article was to explain the sociological imagination, which in other words is a new perspective. The author, C.Wright Mills, wants the reader to look at things at a new perspective and he tells us that from the quote “Neither the life of an individual nor the history of a society can be understood without understanding both”. I didn’t quite understand this quote so I went ahead and looked into it and found an article online called Thinking Outside The Box. The way that they explained this quote was “think yourself away from the familiar routines of everyday life”. Thats exactly what Mills wants us to do. People generally tend to look at things at one perspective but rather we should look at things at multiple perspectives
