Point of view refers to the perspective from which a story is told.
The main points of view are: the omniscient, the limited omniscient, the first person, the stream of consciousness and the objective.

 The Plight of Cosmology
The cosmological point of view is permeated by the difficulties originating from the incompatibility of the cosmogonic and the ontological frames of reference.
On the one hand the world is to be viewed from the point of view of the subject and conceived objectively, and, on the other hand, it has to be maintained in its integrity, viewed from a perspective which precedes the subject-object distinction.
The burden lies with the justification of the claim that the objective world from the point of view of a given subject coalesces with the naive realistic frame of reference in terms of which the same subject is in the world, i.e., an unitary component of reality in togetherness with other entities such as itself.

Point of view (including viewing azimuth and viewing angle and varying along a continuum from nadir to dramatically oblique) is crucial to learning with geographical visualizations.
If students cannot mentally transform their familiar eye-level view of objects around them to a top-down view, or mentally rotate images with the typical north-up orientation of maps, then geographical representations will hold limited meaning for them.
Oblique views, in contrast to nadir views, offer students more information about what is actually contained in the referent space.

 Neutral point of view - Meta
"Neutral point of view" should not be confused with "point of view espoused by an international body such as the United Nations"; writing in NPOV style requires recognising that even widely held or widely respected points of view are not necessarily all-encompassing.
One is expected to approximate NPOV to the best of one's ability and welcome improvements brought by others in good faith; a failure of the system can become an edit war, in which two or more parties dig in and refuse to compromise, instead reverting each other's changes outright.
The neutral point of view attempts to present ideas and facts in such a fashion that both supporters and opponents can agree.

 Point of View
I've judged quite a few unpublished manuscripts lately and I noticed that one of the things that appears to separate the amateur from the professional writer is an understanding of point of view (POV).
Though omniscient POV is seldom used to write entire novels today, it is used occasionally to start a story in order to give the reader a good sense of time and place.
Switching POVs often (called head hopping) is done far too frequently in some romance novels because the author wants to give the reader an idea of how both the hero and heroine feel.
