In social psychology one would talk in terms of the other person’s point of view when soliciting or motivating the other person to do something for you. Being able to see the other person’s point of view is Henry Ford’s advice towards being successful in business. “If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own”.
(1) Dale Carnigie, How to Win Friends and Influence People
In any society, one might be called “narrow minded” if they were unwilling to accept other world views.
One could say this about religion, science, philosophy, mathematics, literature, business, and so on, if the views expressed were not one’s own. But we are all products of our own culture, family history, and education. Put yourself in another culture with a different national history, and your viewpoints would be different. Now that cultures have intermingled throughout the world, we are surrounded by other perspectives.
Can any of us ever determine which point of view, or so-called “fact” is right ?
