Creativity And The Third Age

Adam Limentani

The paper discusses aspects of the creative process in the elderly and, indeed, in the old. After a definition of the third age, the writer goes on to discuss the nature and aims of creativity. Particular attention is paid to the roles of sexuality, regression in the service of the ego, narcissism, sublimation, the depressive position and reparation. There follows discussion on therapeutic work with creative elderly individuals.
