I have a sociology paper due today, but the assignment seems rather vague. :wiener:

Most introductory sociology courses begin with C. Wright Mills' statement of "sociological imagination," and Peter Berger's "invitation to sociology." On the one hand, Mills offers a vision of sociology which connects "private troubles" and "public issues" in the interests of democracy. This seems to imply a value orientation. On the other hand, Berger suggests that sociology's "unmasking tendency" has a way of "seeing" through" all perspectives, presumably including an orientation that values democracy.

Sounds great, but what do you actually want me to do with it? I have a feeling he left something out. A lot of things out. The syllabus was even less helpful. All that told me was this was originally due January 30. All I can think is that I'm not required to do a whole lot since the original date was only the second day of class. However, he postponed it by two weeks, so now I feel like it has to be something much more substantial. Still, the assignment is a statement. Not much you can do with it by itself.

If he didn't tell you what to do you can get away with doing whatever you want as long as you can justify it (use the deductive approach: Mills says A, Berger says B which leads to the problems/questions C,D,E which I am going to answer in this paper).

Write ZOMBO over the paper in big red letters. This isnt needed when ZOMBO is here.

I'll write about how the use of sociological imagination can answer the question of how much wood a woodchopper could chop, if a woodchopper had access to Zombo.

Needed to be no more than two pages, so I'm more than halfway there.

[edit]Whoa, just noticed it said double spaced, so I'm more then done. Now I need to shorten it.[/edit]
