The aging body as lived history
a phenomenological perspective
This chapter focuses on aging and the body. After a short introduction to the question of how we know that we are aging, it concentrates on a phenomenology of the aging body. I will discuss first-person experiences of the aging body, the relationship between the experience of pain, disability, and old age, and third-person experiences of the aging body, especially as it appears to others as "lived history."
