Optimal Aging Across The Life Course: The Purposes of Longer Lives

In this third annual Trends in Gerontology report, optimal aging and human welfare are examined from the perspectives of the 2018–19 chairs of GSA’s four sections: Biological Sciences, Health Sciences, Behavioral and Social Sciences, and Social Research, Policy, and Practice.  

“Ironically, evolutionary theory about aging tells us that longer lives for organisms are pointless beyond the stage of reproduction and perhaps the rearing of offspring. If we are to find meaning in outliving this biological design, it will need to come from human and cultural aspirations for more time alive.”— GSA Past President David J. Ekerdt, PhD, FGSA Innovation in Aging. 2018;2(3):igy029.
