From Perceptual Point of View to Interpretive Perspective Talk of perspectives is ubiquitous in both ordinary and theoretical discourse, across a wide range of domains including politics, religion, science, art, and personal relationships. The role of perspectives in interpretation is especially palpable in persistent disagreement.  But such talk is metaphorical, and often murky.  I identify three points of analogy between perceptual and interpretive perspectives, sketch an account of interpretive perspectives as structured cognitive dispositions, and identify some distinctive norms for assessing them.
