MEDIATORS AND GOTHIC CATHEDRALS

by

David B. Harwi, Esq. and George Reath, Jr., Esq.


We think there is an analogy between mediators and Gothic cathedrals.

The Gothic cathedral has the power by dint of its lofty architecture to move the visitor beyond his concept of reality and to consider an alternative reality on a more spiritual plain.

Likewise, a mediator, through his expertise, has the potential of causing a disputant to reconsider his habitual perception of reality and view the dispute differently, which provides options new to him.
