The papers in this volume on the practical theology of aging aim to engage with fundamental discourses in gerontology to reflect on central aspects of aging such as corporality, wisdom, memory, perception of time, generation, places, reality of media. In addition, the disciplines of practical theology are interrogated about their ability to increase their competence in perceiving, interpreting and acting upon the specific problems posed by aging. Here they engage in debate with neighbouring disciplines in the human sciences.
Enters an up-to-date and fundamental discourse in gerontology
Of interest to scholars as well as people 'working directly in the field'
