Pain and Suffering

Journal of Religious Ethics 2 (1):85 - 98 (1974)
Though related, pain and suffering are two distinct entities and are defined accordingly. An examination of their natures suggests alterations in personal attitudes, particularly in a more positive evaluation of the functions of pain. The evidence provides partial clarification of debates within medical ethics which discuss pain and suffering. Certain concrete changes in the practice of medicine are proposed, especially in the therapeutic treatment of suffering.
