Abstract: Those over sixty years of age accounted for 6.6% of the total population of Brazil in 1985, in the Federal Republic of Germany this proportion was 20.3% in 1984. As early as 1950 it had been 14.5%. This proportion will not even be reached in Brazil in the year 2000 when persons aged sixty years and older are only projected to make up 8.8% of the total population. Similarly, in 1982/84 life expectancy at birth in the Federal Republic was 70.8 years for men and 77.5 for women; in Brazil the figures for 1980/85 w… Show more

“…On the one hand, there is a process of massive aging of the population. On the other, research is being carried out in various scientific areas, which seeks to improve the quality of life for people in general, prolonging life expectancy while maintaining ever more youth, although people's chronological age is above 60 years (Imhof, 1987;Oria, Ferreira, & Santana, 2003). There is a branch of science aimed at finding technologies for rejuvenation, delay of aging, or healthy aging (Flor & Nascimento-Schulze, 2002;Pagnano, 1990;Velasco, Ribeiro, Bedin, Okubo, & Steiner, 2004).…”

“…To conclude, we return to the research field of the present study, seeking to relate some theoretical aspects to a completed empirical investigation. On the one hand, the statistical data show that there is a world tendency toward greater life expectancy (Imhof, 1987;Kalache et al, 1987;Siqueira, Botelho, & Coelho, 2002;. On the other hand, according to Morin (1987), society is being pushed towards a movement of "geronticratization" (sic), and this often, corresponds to attitudes of "pedocratization" (sic).…”
