... The study of aging and the elderly. Social research into the problems and needs specific to the elderly emerged in the 1960s in the context of policy studies—especially of welfare and health services disproportionately used by the elderly. Gerontology is becoming an increasingly significant field of study as many industrialized countries—especially in Europe—confront declining birth rates, longer life spans, and the consequent rising numbers of elderly citizens as a percentage of total population. This demographic shift has serious implications for...

... The study of the processes of ageing , old age, and the elderly. Frequently viewed as a branch of biology, with a focus on the role of genetic factors (the extent to which ageing is pre-programmed), the study of the social aspects of ageing, sometimes termed social gerontology, is now well established. Interest in ageing has grown enormously with 20th-century demographic changes. Increases in life expectancy and reductions in childbearing have transformed the age-structures of the population of advanced industrial societies, increasing significantly...

...and methods-driven theory construction should be beneficial throughout the gerontological community. Since research on aging as a field of inquiry remained in its formative stages in the 1980s, Campbell and O’Rand endeavored to nurture gerontological imaginations in two ways—by bridging disciplinary domains and, additionally, by inviting newcomers to participate as colleagues committed to gerontology’s mission ( Birren & Bengtson, 1988 ). Fresh insights to the sciences of gerontology were also coming from the humanities. In the mid-1970s David D. van Tassel,...

...steadily since the late 1980s. This is one of the many reasons why Rowe and Khan’s attempts to operationalize the idea of aging well had a positive effect on gerontological scholarship. Just as Cicero argued against the alleged disadvantages of old age, these scholars challenged the idea that aging and disease were synonymous, an idea that was quite rampant in gerontological research back when gerontology was first established as a scientific area in the 1950s. Thus, through their formulation of the scientific construct of successful aging, (in hindsight) Rowe...

This development is consistent with the move in gerontology to investigate what Bengtson, Putney, and Johnson ( 2005 ) refer to as the structural contexts of aging and the effect of these on “processes of aging independent of individual action” (p. 17). This approach might also be seen as reflecting the call to bring macrosociological questions back into focus in gerontology, providing a correction to what Hagestad and Dannefer ( 2001 ) refer to as the “persistent tendency towards...

In Western capitalism, a wage-labour system means fixed retirement from external production, thus categorizing the aged as non-productive, and a burden.
