Point of discovery recently – the Age & Reason blog by Michael Hodin. Great resource for conversation on longevity issues.
Looking through history’s lens, the 18th century Age of Enlightenment was also known as the Age of Reason. Fast forward to Charles Handy in 1989; he accurately predicted the 21st century as an Age of Unreason. What Hodin calls for regards the global effect of an aging population is an enlightened response -“age and reason”.
So what we have in a Handy and Hodin world is an opportunity to view social change under a new lens. There are ways and means we can match a new world of work to meet the needs of an aging society.
