Back Cover
BC Wisdon and Age The purpose of this book is to provide people with a better understanding of the aging process. Each season of life has its own particular character, value and developmental tasks.

Wisdom and Age brings together contributions from scholars in the fields of philosophy, religion, psychology, anthropology, ecology, history and literature to provide a broad context for understanding the richness, complexity and ambiguity of the aging process. Reading this book, which was designed for young people as well as those in mid-life and older, people can develop a more positive attitude toward both the elderly and their own later years.

This book is built on the premise that he humanities perspective can add a dimension of wisdom to our growing scientific understanding of aging. Belief in immortality or in the symbolic immortality of cultures gives people something to live for in our times of rapid social and cultural change.
