have something in better perspective Morrie had aging in better perspective. There's a phrase in English,  to get/put something in perspective. Is there a phrase, have something in perspective? Does the sentence mean Morrie had a better understanding of aging?

Sort of. Perspective means "a particular way of viewing things that depends on one’s experience and personality" (this is from the Cambridge Dictionary) So it means that either Morrie's way of looking at aging was "better" (meaning he had a clearer view of this than Mitch, who was much younger, did.)
