Abstract

Kathleen Woodward explores the workings of reminiscence and of life review--one fragmentary, the other totalizing--and their importance, what they have to offer to a life as it passes into old age. Reminiscing is less concerned with truth than with creating an atmosphere with a promise of trust and security. Woodward, Fabe and Scharlach explore these themes in terms of what they mean to human life, human relationships and the process of aging.
