    Perspective

    I have come across the structure " through a different perspective". "From a different perspective" sounds right but when can you use "through"? Or can you use it at all? Thanks in anticipation.

    I would use only 'from'.

    Oh...so it isn't correct? Then you should never use 'through'?

    I can't think of a situation in which 'through' would be used, but I know that if I say 'never', somebody will come up with an example to prove me wrong.
