Beyond Successful and Active Ageing : A Theory of Model Ageing (Hardcover) (Virpi Timonen)
About this item
These days, the concept of successful and active aging has become near ubiquitous, deployed by policy makers and marketing professionals alike.Beyond Successful and Active Ageing argues that while this approach to aging may seem benign, it actually exacerbates inequalities among older populations. Virpi Timonen puts forth a new theory designed to make sense of the popularity of these concepts and enable readers to view them through the prism of model aging, a theory that sheds light on the causes and consequences of attempts to depict aging as a stage of life that requires direction, reshaping, and control.
