Gerotranscendence: A Developmental Theory of Positive Aging

description

From the description:

Expanding upon his earlier writings, Dr. Tornstam’s latest book explores the need for new theories in gerontology and sets the stage for the development of his theory of gerotranscendence. This theory was developed to address what the author sees as a perpetual mismatch between present theories in social gerontology and existing empirical data.
