Erikson's Theory of Human Development as it Applies to the Aged: Wisdom as Contradictive Cognition
Clayton, Vivian
Human Development, 18, 1-2, 119-128, 75
Erikson's theory of human development is discussed; the question is raised as to whether most elderly individuals resolve the crisis between integrity and despair which signals the last stage of the life cycle. It is concluded that most individuals seek foreclosure or enter prolonged moratoriums after adolescence, never reaching this stage. (JMB)
