Description de l'ouvrage

5 novembre 2013
A brave book with a polemical argument on the paradoxes, struggles and advantages of aging.

How old am I? Don’t ask, don’t tell. As the baby boomers approach their sixth or seventh decade, they are faced with new challenges and questions of politics and identity. In the footsteps of Simone de Beauvoir, Out of Time looks at many of the issues facing the aged—the war of the generations and baby-boomer bashing, the politics of desire, the diminished situation of the older woman, the space on the left for the presence and resistance of the old, the problems of dealing with loss and mortality, and how to find victory in survival.

Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

 "So what does it mean to age gracefully? How is this done? These questions are at the centre of a thoughtful new book from Lynne Segal" – Economist

"Out of Time is a thoughtful, reflective book. It encourages people to keep dreaming, keep fighting, and perhaps most of all keep living." —Pop Matters 

"In this courageous study, Lynne Segal addresses the vicissitudes of ageing, a process that lies in wait for us all. She turns on the subject a critical eye honed by social psychology, psychoanalysis, feminism and radical politics. An original, probing and unsettling exploration." Stuart Hall, author of Representation

"It’s about time for a book like Out of Time, compassionate, seasoned, honest, and wise, which asks questions about age but aims to enlighten, rather than frighten us. Read on!"
Elaine Showalter, author of A Jury of Her Peers

"An international treasure … her beautifully written, deeply engrossing work … will inspire new generations."—Barbara Ehrenreich

"One of the most capacious readers of feminism and sexuality studies I have ever encountered."—Judith Butler

"Passionate, lucid, and shockingly candid … a clarion call to those who see feminism as a redundant cause."—Helen Walsh

We are aware of the demograhic changes that will soon bring the fraction of over-60s in the population to over 30% and we are also aware of the prejudices against this aging population, but how do the elderly live their aging process?

This is a remarkable book in that it explores the lives and thought processes of the elderly with respect to their situation, via the writing of our finest minds. We discover much that is constructivee about desire, spirituality, fear of death, generational and gender conflicts in this aging population, of which I am a part.

A real voyage of discovery!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A MEMOIR AND ANALYSIS ON THE SUBJECT OF AGING! 7 novembre 2013
Par Online Book Reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
It is much safer and easier to ask someone who's in their sixties or seventies their age, something which we dare not ask someone who's in the thirties or forties. Old age is not an easy thing. Someone once said, "Old age is not for sissies!"

In a bold new book Out of Time: The Pleasures and Perils of Ageing, British academician Lynne Segal, who is a professor of psychology and gender studies at Birkbeck College, London, delves into the issue of aging in a passionate and striking manner, exploring both its pleasures and perils in a definitive study as she only can. We're supposed to deny being old; it is seen as an insulting, or at least unwelcome, well padded with euphemisms. Ageing is a process, a matter of degree rather than a fixed identity. `You are only as old as you feel', though routinely offered as a jolly form of reassurance, carries its own severe judgement and disavowal of the benefits and joys of old age.

Without mincing words, Segal discusses the fear of growing old which is not the attitude of some few people but the vast sea of humanity. Both a memoir and analysis, Segal also pointed that the process of aging is complex but not without its fair share of happiness. There are also the joys of love and sexuality as one grows older. It is a book that educates the reader on the subject of aging, and to view the aged with more understanding and compassion.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Out of Patience With Out of Time 12 janvier 2014
Par Alpaca lover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I ordered the Kindle edition after reading a rave review in the Economist, a British publication. There is an average of 88 footnotes per chapter. Try turning the Kindle page without touching a footnote number! Kindle takes you immediately to the footnote and then you need to spend minutes trying to go back to where you were reading. Paging back doesn't do it. There were many long quotes from various feminists and I found it difficult to segue from the quotation to the author's point of view. The book reads like a doctoral thesis. The material was interesting but poorly presented. I am a 72 year old woman and have never looked into the mirror and seen "with horror" my mother's image. This was a recurring theme in the book. The many joys that growing older can bring were given scant attention. I finished the book, however I'll admit I skimmed many parts just to get on with it. The author was far too much in the background, buried by all her quotations from other people. What did she think - where was her voice?

Lynne Segal's Out of Time is a well-written exploration of how women experience aging in today's society. The male reviewers here have noted that it is primarily about women and thus of no real interest to them, which mirrors the general male indifference to the problems of older women, but this demonstrates why this is a much needed book. Segal acknowledges the very gendered aspect of aging, which affects women much more than men. Most of the elderly are women, who are more likely to be financially poor (sometimes as the result of taking care of aging spouses) and despite their social networks, more likely to be aging alone. As Segal points out, older women are not only marginalized and ignored in patriarchy, they are also disregarded by younger, feminist women. How do older women craft an identity for themselves in a world where they are either treated as they are invisible or as objects of cultural contempt? Nobody wants to be an old lady, but it happens to us whether we want to or not. This is a thoughtfully written book and well worth reading.

A joy to read. Segal's depth of literary sources helps you understand the complexity around the perceptions on aging. If you want to decode the false debates between young and old and discover meaningful insights on how to retain your passion for life, read this book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 It never caught my attention 28 novembre 2013

This has been a disappointment for me, though the book is full of information about what knowledgeable people have said and thought. Too encyclopedic for me. I am sure other people will see it differently.
