The Long Life

Helen Small

  • The first major study of old age in philosophy and literature since Beauvoir's The Coming of Age - essential reading for anyone interest in old age as a personal or public matter of interest
  • Exceptional range: from Plato through to contemporary theories of social justice and evolutionary science
  • Broadens the terrain of debate regarding the greying of society, beyond the familiar 'representations of old age' and the standard considerations of social policy
  • Moves well beyond the philosophical arguments and texts commonly studied by literary critics
