Promise of Sociology

..."The Promise of Sociology" by C. Wright Mills         According to C. Wright Mills, what occurs in any one individual's life is interrelated with society as a whole. The sociological imagination gives us the ability to understand the correlation of one's biography, history, and traditions along with the knowledge of the social and historical impact and/or influence society may have on that person or group of people. Mills' notion compels us to investigate into an individual's biography and lifestyles, and place their findings within the surrounding circumstances in which events occur in order to perceive the whole picture of the society in which the individual lives. Mills says to understand this "imagination" would be to see the connection between personal troubles and public issues. Personal troubles meaning, problems that are felt personally which are caused by occurrences or feelings in an individual's life; and public issues meaning, issues that affect a group or mass of people with their roots interwoven within an organization or institution and history of a society. A person can become homeless for many reasons: a family member throws them out of their home because they do not contribute financially, or they become incapable of caring for themselves due to mental illness, or they become addicted to drugs and lose their home trying to support their habit. These are a few examples of personal troubles which most would think are brought about by the individual alone......

Illusory Promises

...non-performance, which means that the speaker does not legally bind himself or herself to act.” That is what an Illusory Promise technically means. Illusory Promises are pretty much fake contracts. Courts will not enforce an illusory contract. Most of the time, a contract is considered illusory when it has a lack of consideration. This name came from the fact that they are pretty much just illusions of a contract. An example of this is if someone would say to you, “Maybe I will give you my car one day.” Courts will not enforce that statement as a contract because there are no definite terms used in the statement. The words “maybe” and “one day” make this an illusory promise because odds are it is not going to ever happen. This contract is not valid at all and is illusory because the promisor can choose whether or not to go through with the promise. This is not fair to the promisee because no matter what they do or give, their satisfaction is not guaranteed because of the misleading contract that they got into.

Broken Promise

...Broken Promise … “Chinnu... Tell me something. What if we both separate, what if we are never to see each other again. Ofcourse, you’ll marry someone. But will you name your daughter after me?” As I waited by the taxi outside her room to accompany her to the railway station, I felt a sudden desire to erase everything that had happened between us till that day. The device in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which erased selected people or things from one’s memory, came to my mind, and I felt that it was what I needed most because whatever pain I felt then seemed possible only because of whatever happened between us in the past - in the last three years. Three short, lovely years!!! Had I not met her for the first time at my friend’s birthday, had I not called a week after that and told her that I wanted to see her, had I not seen her and revealed my love for her and had I not loved her, would I have felt whatever I felt then? Whatever was the answer, I had made up my mind that I would not be seeing her again after that day. I had made a promise to her and to myself to never try to contact her after that evening... after that last trip to the station together. She walked slowly to the taxi and as she bent herself into the backseat, I noticed her smile at me, probably a smile of greeting, or one of love, or one of mockery. I sat beside her but felt extremely sorry for myself for doing that. I felt I had missed an opportunity to make a statement by sitting in the front...

The Promise

...The Promise Is it easy to abandon innate things? While I grew up in Africa poetry and adverbs became daily needs. The poetry inheriting a long oral tradition has always interested me. I also have the curiosity to ask too much about proverbs and traditional words because it is not easy to understand them and they are highly regarded in my society. This African proverb "the promise is a debt" has made me a moon of his word, pious and honest. The promise is commonly defined as an act by which a person, the promisor undertakes to one or more beneficiaries to do something in the future. It is noted those there different kinds of promises: political, economic and social. Debt is moral duty towards someone. Whatever the promise given, a response will be expected by beneficiaries. They will always look towards a promising, these promises will always be considered as debt. A debt is moral duty toward someone. The promises that we take, make people happy and excited, but the question is if they will be respected. When you cannot fulfill the promises that we have made, we tend to find excuses to avoid feeling guilty. These excuses allow us to justify our failures and prevent us from dealing with the embarrassing reality. The promise is morally important in African society. If we do not respect our promise, people lose confidence in us. This promise can be upgraded or respected in some parts of the world. This proverb "a promise is a debt" is an......

The Promise

...The Sociological Imagination Chapter One: The Promise C. Wright Mills (1959) Nowadays people often feel that their private lives are a series of traps. They sense that within their everyday worlds, they cannot overcome their troubles, and in this feeling, they are often quite correct. What ordinary people are directly aware of and what they try to do are bounded by the private orbits in which they live; their visions and their powers are limited to the close-up scenes of job, family, neighborhood; in other milieux, they move vicariously and remain spectators. And the more aware they become, however vaguely, of ambitions and of threats which transcend their immediate locales, the more trapped they seem to feel. Underlying this sense of being trapped are seemingly impersonal changes in the very structure of continent-wide societies. The facts of contemporary history are also facts about the success and the failure of individual men and women. When a society is industrialized, a peasant becomes a worker; a feudal lord is liquidated or becomes a businessman. When classes rise or fall, a person is employed or unemployed; when the rate of investment goes up or down, a person takes new heart or goes broke. When wars happen, an insurance salesperson becomes a rocket launcher; a store clerk, a radar operator; a wife or husband lives alone; a child grows up without a parent. Neither the life of an individual nor the history of a society can be understood without understanding both...

The Promise Essay

...C. Wright Mills (August 28, 1916 – March 20, 1962) was an American sociologist, and a professor of sociology at Columbia University. Mills was also the author of a number of books. One book which Mills is best known for is The Sociological Imagination (1959), which is considered Mills' most influential book. The first chapter of the book which is titled The Promise, Mills argues that individuals are trapped in their own private bubbles, which he refers to as private orbits. Mills states that in order for a sociologist to properly study sociology, they need to have a certain mindset which according to Mills he calls the sociological imagination. He also goes on to discuss the distinction between personal troubles and public issues. In The Promise, Mills believes that people are trapped in their own private orbits. Private orbits according to Mills is your direct everyday living routine for example your job, family, neighborhood or school. He feels that individuals are so caught up in their orbits that they cannot view the world beyond their immediate and everyday surrounding. Any ambition or threat outside of their orbit that can affect or impact it, leaves the individual feeling more trapped. Mills states that you cannot understand the life of an individual or the history of society without fully understanding both and how they are connected. He also talks about how people do not see how history can have a direct impact on their lives and how it affects them, they do not......

...Brand Promise Brand Promise Apple’s Promise to Customers Apple Inc. leads the market of computers and smartphones in today’s society. "Apple is committed to bringing the best personal computing experience to students, educators, creative professionals and consumers around the world through its innovative hardware, software and Internet offerings." This is the company’s promise to customers and mission that they stand by. Apple first took this promise public in a commercial during the 1984 Super Bowl, comparing Apple to IBM computers. This commercial only aired once, but was the beginning of a whole new era of technology.(Cole, 2013) Apple’s mission statement is “We will be the coolest, most creative, intelligent, and adventurous, socially engaged and admired selves”. Steve Job made this a mission that is reachable and upheld for more than 18 years. The company slogan “Think Different” has made Apple standout against the rest of competitive market. “Think Different” allows apple consumers to increase their cultural capital and raise their social standing. (Farfan, 2015) Culture capital is a fairly old concept defined by Pierre Bourdieu. This concept represents all goods material and symbolic, without distinction sought after. This holds true to Apple products. Customers that own an Apple IPhone are considered to have a high social class. The Apple IPhone is priced so that middle to higher end lower class can purchase this product. With this being said many......

A Promise

...A promise It was 1930 in the small town of Molching, Germany. Lissette Meminger was a twelve year old German girl, who was given up by her Father to live with her foster parents. Her mother, Rosa Meminger, was persecuted for being a communist, while her father, Rick Meminger, was a Jew hiding from the Nazis. Rick looked at her deeply in her eyes with compassion, as he examined her. Her hair was a rich shade of gold, it flowed in waves that adorned her glowing pale skin. Her eyes, framed by long brown lashes, were a bright oceanblue. "I promise that I will come back for you, mark my words. I will come back with your horse ," he blurted with a somber tone. As Lissette proceeded to hug her father goodbye, she looked at him with pleading sight. Her face showed distress and as she closed her eyes, teardrops slowly ran down her face. " I promise that I will be patiently waiting for you, daddy" She sobbed. That was the last time Lissette ever laid eyes on her father. Nine years passed, and the situation in Germany had gotten worse. As the moon continued its orbit, Rick Meminger had started to begin his journey. The cool night breeze whistled softly, blowing lightly through the exhausted mouth of Liz, and Rick. "Come on Liz, don't you want to meet who I named you after, few more meters bud" said Rick as they walk. Rick had grown into an older man, his charcoal-gray hair was oily and un-kept as if he hadn't......

Making a Promise

...making a promise is binding. Therefore, breaking that promise is immoral. Not only would Kant keep that promise, he would follow through with it. Kant would indeed take the money and use it on the orchids, not helping the thousands of war refugees. In Kant’s view, making a promise is a categorical imperative. In other words, this promise denotes an absolute, unconditional requirement that must be obeyed in all circumstances and is justified as an end in itself. With looking at the categorical imperative, the act of not keeping the promise is immoral and the end result is ultimately satisfied regardless of the outcome. Generally speaking, Kant’s views are representative of deontology, which states that what is moral is determined by the adherence of that action to a set of rules and not the consequences of the action itself. Therefore in our example, what is moral is keeping the promise made, not what the money is used for itself. From a utilitarianism standpoint, you can say you keep the promise but not follow through with it by breaking it after the man dies. According to the greatest happiness principle, actions are right in proportion as they tend to produce happiness. The happiness of thousands of war refugees outweighs a single persons happiness. While promising to dedicate all the money and tend to the man’s orchids, a utilitarian might ultimately use the money to help the thousands of war refugees who have been impacted/affected by the war. If breaking a promise......

The Promise

...Chapter One ‘The Promise’, of C.Wright Mills (1959) The Sociological Imagination. The Promise, a chapter in the book entitled ‘The Sociological Imagination’, written by C. Wright Mills (1959, pp 3-24) is from a sociological perspective in regards to the unrecognised linkage between history and biography. It also mentions the three sorts of questions asked by classical analyst, the distinction between the terms issues and troubles. Mills repetitively makes reference to the notion that in order to comprehend an individual’s life; be it man or woman, it is prominent to consider and understand one’s historical social context. There is a connection that exists which most people don’t acknowledge and realise its existence, which is the “the interplay of biography and history” [ (p. 4) ]. According to Mills, “Men often feel that their lives are a series of traps. They feel that within their worlds they cannot overcome their troubles [ (p. 3) ]. This theory supports the notion that feelings associated with malaise, troubles and issues are actually linked to society which affects them individually. Mills strongly emphasises the importance of sociological imagination, which is that in order for an individual to make sense of what is happening to them, they should consider and reflect on the intersections of biographical time and social-historical time. Mills emphasises the significance of sociological imagination and states that isn’t simplistically a ‘fashion’ but a quality of......

Promises

...Promises Today I was thinking about what a soldier would look like on paper and this is where it brought me.A Soldier's Promise ...I cannot promise you every night of my life. I cannot promise to be beside you for every difficult moment, every trial, every hardship. In truth, I can promise you that I will not be with you for most. I will leave you at inconvenient times. I may miss the births of our children. Any special date to us may be tainted with the anniversary of the death of one of my friends. I will ask you to take over whatever life we have built together for months and years at a time. And will then crash back into that life that you have used your sweat and your tears and your heartache to keep together and try to take it back as I knew it before. I will shut you out at times because it will be the best way for me to hold it together at that moment. I will lie to you. I will tell you I don't know things when I do.
