Résumé :

How do older people decide to deploy their continued vitality, once they are free from the demands of work and child-rearing? How do they find meaning in daily life ? The number of able elderly entering a time of life that is virtually uncharted is now greater than it has ever been. The term "third-age" has been given to this time of live during which there is relatively good health, financial stability, fewer social expectations, and reduced obligations. Those entering the third age have the freedom and the need to find new activities that they can imbue with meaning. Scholars concerned with life in the third age and anyone entering the third age will find this book to be of critical importance.
