Aging with dignity

a philosophical perspective

Ralf Stoecker

pp. 253-267

This chapter focuses on the question what constitutes aging with dignity. I argue that it is not least our lack of willingness to grant old age its own place in life that makes older people vulnerable for violations of their dignity. In this sense, dignity can also be a question of the correct anthropology.
