Coping with Aging

Richard S. Lazarus and Bernice N. Lazarus

Coping with Aging is the final project of the late Richard S. Lazarus, the man whose landmark book Emotion and Adaptation put the study of emotion in play in the field of psychology. Lazarus examines the experience of aging from the standpoint of the individual, rather than merely as a collection of statistics and charts. Drawing on his five decades of pioneering research, Lazarus looks at aging, emotion and coping, and stability and change in both environment and personality. Because Lazarus mixes academic rigor with everyday examples, this volume will be both useful to scholars and accessible to the lay audience that has so much to gain from a systematic understanding of aging and emotion.
