Like all social processes, the very essence of aging is socially constructed. Our notion of what it means to grow old is constantly shifting, different now in this moment of ‰ŰĎrapid graying‰Űť than in centuries past, and no doubt different than it will be in the future. Our understanding of old age is produced and reproduced by political climates, religious movements, medical advances, and especially now, the ever-present media discourse.
