Generative Society by Dan P. McAdams

Book Description

Adult individuals in all societies have long understood the need for generativity - concern for and commitment to caring for the next generation. The need for generative action is particularly critical given the societal and global threats facing mankind in the first years of the 21st century. Building upon Erikson's groundbreaking developmental model that first propelled the construct of "generativity versus stagnation" into mainstream consciousness, this text examines this critical stage of development that occurs during the "long middle" of adulthood, as it exists on societal and cultural levels. This volume's diverse group of scholars explores the complex relationships between generativity and various societies' political, economic, religious, educational and cultural arenas. Integrating empirical research, scientific and cultural theory and their own informed observations and speculations regarding generativity in society, the volume that results aims to be a stimulating exchange about the multifaceted rol of generativity in human life and society.
