About the Author:

Joan Mowat Erikson was born in Canada; she earned her B.A. in Education at Columbia University and an M.A. in Sociology at the University of Pennsylvania. She is a teacher, writer, and craftsman and has worked with gold, silver, and precious stones. She is the author of a previous book, The Universal Bead. She is married to the noted psychoanalyst Erik H. Erikson.

From Library Journal:

This intelligent, idiosyncratic examination of the intellectual and emotional life cycle enlarges on Erik Erikson's now institutionalized psychological development theory, the basis for his former co-author and wife's present study of art's contribution to the wisdom attributed to old age. Hypothesizing that "creative experience demands of us only that which is genuinely our own . . . our personal, accrued store of sense data," Mrs. Erikson calls upon her fund of knowledge about Eastern and Western philosophy, the creative arts, and the lives of her dedicated artist friends to offer readers with imagination an engaging study of the play between creating and aging. Recommended for general as well as academic collections. Francisca Goldsmith, Golden Gate Univ. Lib., San Francisco
