Part 3 contains the three chapters I found most difficult and most interesting. Hazan’s tour-de-force chapter, "The Double Voice of the Third Age: Splitting the Speaking Self as an Adaptive Strategy in Later Life," indicates that the elderly may reveal only what they perceive society wishes to hear. Kegan’s chapter, "Epistemology, Expectation, and Aging: A Developmental Analysis of the Gerontological Curriculum," presents a sort of developmental line from the socialized mind to the self-authoring mind and, ultimately, the self-transforming mind (which few of us attain, perhaps like the genital character level). The editor, Jacob Lomranz, presents his concept of "aintegration," stating that the prefix "a" denotes "not" (I would have thought it denotes "without" rather than "not," but perhaps he eschewed coining "sintegration" or "imtegration" for the concept). What he is trying to measure is the person’s ability to feel well without necessarily having integrated all the biopsychosocial levels or entities into an overriding whole.
