Ageing, Insight and Wisdom: Meaning and pratice across the lifecourse

Edmondson, R. (2015). Ageing, Insight and Wisdom: Meaning and Practice Across the Lifecourse. Oxon, UK; University of Bristol Policy Press.

Abstract: Taking a novel approach to aging, this book focuses on older people as makers of meaning and insight, highlighting the evolving values, priorities, and ways of communicating that make later life fascinating and rich. Ricca Edmondson explores what creating meaning in later life really implies, for older people themselves, for how older people are conceptualized, and for relationships between generations. Offering a language for discussing types and issues of lifecourse meaning, including those concerning the ethical and temporal ways older people interpret their experiences, form part of social and symbolic landscapes, and offer wisdom, Ageing, Insight and Wisdom will appeal to scholars of gerontology, sociological methodology, humanistic sociology, philosophy, psychology, and health promotion and medicine.
