Creativity in the Later Years: Optimistic Prospects for Achievement.
Simonton, Dean Keith
Gerontologist, v30 n5 p626-31 Oct 1990
Claims that, despite apparent decline in productivity in final years of life, seven considerations suggest a far more favorable outlook: role of extrinsic influences; contingency on career age; impact of individual differences in creative potential; interdisciplinary variation in age curves; absence of age decrement on contribution-for-contribution basis; and resurgence of creativity in form of swan-song phenomenon.
