Abstract and Keywords
The intent of this chapter is to provide both theoretical background and context for work and aging issues by briefly reviewing prevalent theories of aging from a diverse array of disciplines (e.g., psychology, biology, sociology), and integrating them with current perspectives on the meaning of working for older workers. This integration is facilitated via the introduction of a newly developed heuristic model that describes how various factors that occur across the life span may serve to influence the meaning of working for older workers.
