    The Teaching of John Paul II on the Christian Meaning of Suffering.J. F. Crosby - 1996 - Christian Bioethics 2 (2):154-171.
    Taking John Paul II's teaching on the Christian meaning of suffering as my main source for a Catholic perspective on suffering, I show how seriously he takes the reality of suffering, and how seriously he takes the question as to the meaning of suffering.

    My interlocutor is Locke with his reduction of person to personal consciousness.
