Patrick T. Hall's informative Choosing Perspectives over Perceptions walks readers through a landscape of terminology that will shed light on the reason why one's social perceptions should give way to a refocusing on perspectives. In the global world of today, perspectives emerge from a variety of diverse factors including religion, education, the use and misuse of power, and social and cultural diversity.
While reading this book, these factors and the way in which they interact with perception will become clearer. The social crises that we face today will only be overcome when we are able to begin harmonizing our strengths. When we are able to judge ourselves with the same critical eye that we judge others and when we can see each other for our actions rather than our reputations, we will be able to rise up with more strength and faith than ever to confront the work ahead of us.
Perspectives within and divergences towards others have established a standard norm of assumptions that has prematurely birthed perceptions, prejudices, and political scrutiny without veracity into reality!
