This paper examines some connections between the philosophies of the human person articulated by Karol Wojtyla (later Pope John Paul II) and Bernard Lonergan. After noting their common agenda to bring together the best of the Thomist tradition with the best of contemporary philosophy, it focuses on five areas of parallel between the two thinkers: their understandings of experience and consciousness, of subjectivity and metaphysics, of the importance of human action, of the transcendence of the human person, and of the key role of judgement.
