Abstract

This volume of the Macy Foundation Conferences on the Problems of Aging is the product of an attempt at a multidiscipline approach to an important subject. Participants in the discussion included pathologists, biochemists, biologists, sociologists, clinicians, anthropologists, endocrinologists, public health experts, and a librarian "concerned with Leonardo da Vinci's studies of the aging process."

The discussion ranged from methods of measuring physiological age to the proper use of leisure time and the need for suitable housing for the aged. The presence of experts from England, Denmark, and Switzerland added much to the interest of this Symposium.

Anyone with a social conscience or with an awareness of the approach of old age will find this volume a very stimulating contribution.
