Transcript of Sociology of Me

sociological imagination - the capacity range from the most impersonal and remote topics to the most intimate features of the human-self and to see the relations between the two. I have applied a sociological imagination to my life by helping a friend through a tough situation where i had to use a sociological imagination.
sociological imagination
I think that i relate to Karl Marx more then any other sociologists because he was a philosopher. Marx contributed intellectually by introducing the theory of social change based upon antagonisms between social classes and the insight that power originates from economics. I relate to this because i am problem solver.
