Policy Press

‘The future,’ research participants discuss what is yet to come – their future plans, fears and worries, and imaginings. Their narratives and thoughts include dementia, loss, health and vitality, agency and fulfilment, and much more. Longevity and ‘deep time’ have played an instrumental part in the postwar generation’s ability to imagine a possible long and generative future. Becoming, death, and generativity sit together in anticipation of imagined futures.

Keywords:   dementia, loss, health, vitality, longevity, postwar generation, generative future, death, generativity, imagined futures
