van Selm, Martine; Dittmann-Kohli, Freya
International Journal of Aging & Human Development, v47 n2 p81-104 1998
A new construct of meaninglessness as a psychological dimension of everyday life is presented. Four theoretically based components of the construct were expressed in the self and life descriptions of 95% of 153 Dutch independently-living aged adults. Content analysis was used; components and explanations are discussed. (Author/EMK)
