Clarification and Application of Erik Erikson's Eighth Stage of Man.
Rosel, Natalie
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v27 n1 p11-23 1988
Applies Erikson's life cycle conception of ego integrity versus despair in old age to three octogenarian women: Augusta Turnley (fiction), Florida Scott-Maxwell, and Arie Carpenter. Both dialectical struggle in Erikson's model of old age and specific components of ego integrity, despair, and wisdom are made concrete in theoretical exploration of the women. (Author/NB)
