When reading the book Handbook of Theories of Aging as part of the course Theories of Ageing, I realised that I missed a perspective from philosophy or the humanities; a perspective that more explicetely emphasized the ethical, philosophical and theological aspects of ageing.

Thus, I started looking around elsewhere and after a while I found the following text by the Dutch researcher Jan Baars in a relatively recent (well, well) issue of The Gerontologist.

It really captured very well the dimension of ageing that I had been missing, and I hope that I will be able to incorporate it into the writing of my assignment 2 in this course and hopefully also to be able to refer to it later on, for example in the kappa.
