Altern: Erzähltes Wissen

  • Riitta-Liisa Heikkinen
Conference paper


Phänomenologische und biographische Forschung hat innerhalb der Geistesund Sozialwissenschaften eine lange Tradition. Die Alternsforschung allerdings hat sich erst in jüngster Zeit ernsthafter damit beschäftigt, wie ältere Menschen ihr gegenwärtiges und vergangenes Leben - und das Altwerden an sich - betrachten und erleben. Phänomenologische Gerontologie versucht, das Erleben und Verarbeiten solcher Phänomene zu erfassen und sichtbar zu machen.
