Abstract

Ageing populations have become a major concern over the past fifty years, drawing the attention of both politics and science. The target of a raft of health and social policies, older people are often identified as a specific, and vulnerable, population. At the same time, ageing has become a specialisation in disciplines such as medicine and sociology, and a discipline of its own: gerontology. Questioning this framing of old age, this book unpacks the political and moral dimensions of scientific research on ageing. It brings together a range of multidisciplinary, European perspectives, and will be of use to all those interested in old age and the social sciences.
