The term "traditional interpretation" refers not to the religious or ideological perspective of the book, but rather to the view that natural law is "written on the heart." Untraditional is the way the book uses narrative theory to put feelings into words, and words into feelings. In other words, stories, rather than argument, become the basic unit of the natural law."@en ;
