    singular or plural

    Hi,

    Please let me know whether the word perspective in the following sentence should be singular or plural:

    Taken together, the perspective of Emerson and his transcendentalist peers suggested that American society needed a radically different approach to nature and species.

    Thanks

    Re: singular or plural

    If Emerson and his transcendentalist peers have the same perspective, then it's singular. If they have different perspectives, then the word is plural.
