Can the word 'view' be a good synonym for 'survey' in the following context?
A man does right, as a rule, to have his thoughts more occupied with the interests of his own nation than with those of others, because his actions are more likely to affect his own nation. But in time of war, and in all matters which are of equal concern to other nations and to his own, a man ought to take account of the universal welfare, and not allow his survey to be limited by the interest, or supposed interest, of his own group or nation.
Oxford Dictionary has defined 'survey' as "A general view, examination, or description of someone or something".
