you could probably make an argument for several answers... he goes through a lot of changes throughout the play. he starts as a guilty dude who's obsessed with his own faults/guilt, and ends accepting why he did the things he did... i think you could say he symbolizes self-acceptance? i would read over his character analysis:
...and then decide what you think he represents (imagine you're arthur miller and you're writing the play, what do you want John to be remembered as in a reader's mind?)

Just a shot in the dark... sanity when the world goes mad. or How faulty humans can be.
