Perspective is the ability to stand back and see a situation in a wider context.  It is a thinking skill that can be extremely useful when we are immersed in any form of complexity – from thinking about our existence as a human being, to living our day-to-day lives, through to battling with a moral question.


At Life Squared, we believe that, by developing perspective, people can gain better lives in the modern world.  This is why we have provided some of the content in the ‘Good stuff’ section – particularly the information and overviews contained within the ‘Understanding the world’ and ‘Understanding concepts and ideas’ categories – to help people develop perspective.
