Abstract

This essay is a Commentary appearing in a Symposium on the Practice of Law and Spiritual Values and suggests that "secular humanism," including non-conventional religions (like Ethical Culture) and political movements (for civil rights, feminism, social justice) also constitute a form of human "spirituality" that has and can inform practices in conflict and dispute resolution. This personal essay describes how such religious, political and spiritual "movements" have informed Professor Menkel-Meadow's professional mediational theory and practice.
