This chapter introduces the issue that will be discussed in the chapters of the volume: the interrelationship between critical and humanistic gerontology. The volume prepares the common ground for these two paradigms that have developed separately with each drawing on their own traditional resources. The purpose of this volume is to explore the extent to which they presuppose and complement each other: as structural analysis and articulations of interpersonal meanings in old age.
