Philosophy of Aging
Now, more than ever, we need philosophy of aging. In the U.S., Baby Boomers (born between 1946-1964) number 78 million and are the fastest growing age segment of the population. As they became a larger share of the workforce, they acquired more economic, social, and political power. They continue to transform fashion, the arts, and politics. Their lives created the world in a way no one could have imagined. It is because of them, the “grey panthers” that age, gender, and racial discrimination became illegal, that PTSD entered the DSM, and sexuality shed its taboo. And now as they are aging, we can no longer ignore either the problems or rewards in the later stages of life.
What follows are four lectures that cover the topic from a variety of perspectives:
Successful Aging Is Not New: Wisdom from the Ancient Philosophers
Sex, Love, and Romance
Art, the Body, Gender, and Aging
Finding Purpose and Meaning in Later Life
