For decades Erik Erikson's concept of the stages of human development deeply influenced the field of contemporary psychology. Here, through the scholarship of his closest collaborator, Joan Erikson, is an expanded edition of his final work, covering the full span of the life cycle. What Erik Erikson fell short of covering during his life of remarkable achievements was a ninth stage, of very old age. As human longevity increases, that stage has become of increasing significance to many individuals concerned about the quality and nature of their daily lives while they age into their eighth and ninth decades of life. Now Joan Erikson, in her nineties, masterfully guides us through the specific challenges and pleasures of older age, extending Erik Erikson's vision of human development in its major phases. In her introductory remarks about the ninth stage, Joan Erikson writes of the particular challenges faced by elders whose years of autonomy over their bodies and life choices are affected by the inevitable wages of time. She outlines the critical role that hope and faith must play in the lives of eighty- and ninety-year-olds, and she perceptively revises the concept of wisdom

Joan Erikson speaks of changes in the two years since her first narrative on old age, speaking of her experiences with a new living situation and her husband's death.

The eighth life cycle is revisited and an additional ninth stage is proposed

Legacies : Prometheus, Orpheus, Socrates by Joan M Erikson( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Myth and legend illuminate human history as each generation draws inspiration from the lives and teaching of icon-like figures who channel the legacy of an epoch. In this book, Joan M. Erikson turns to classical Greece in search of three such mentors who have left an enduring imprint on western culture. We visit Prometheus enchained on a mountain crag and consider his remarkable steadfastness against tyranny and his concern for human beings. We then meet Orpheus, the shaman-like patron of all the arts whose influence hovers over the glory that once was Greece. Finally, we are offered an insightful developmental portrait of Socrates and a fascinating glimpse into the life and thought of that great Athenian philosopher, teacher, and martyr. A shadowy figure pervades this journey into the past and emerges into the present: Peitho, the Greek goddess of "persuasion." It is by means of her art that Prometheus, Orpheus, and Socrates made their messages "so clear, resounding, and memorable." By inheriting the legacies of these ancient mentors we also inherit a responsibility - to use their gifts wisely. Erikson reflects on our urgent need to promote both local and global interrelationship, to strengthen ties to community, to discover persuasive means of negotiation beyond violence, and, above all, to preserve what remains of our planet's fragile ecological integrity
