Voices and visions of aging: toward a critical gerontology
A critical gerontology requires more than a simple elaboration of existing humanistic scholarship on aging. This exceptional new work introduces a basis for genuine dialogue across humanistic, scientific, and professional disciplines. Among the topics addressed are industrial employment, retirement, life styles of older women, and biological research. From philosophical reflections on the "third age" to critical perspectives on institutional adaptations to an aging society, this book presents a wide range of provocative thought.
