ABOUT OUTLIVING THE SELF:
Using dramatic personal narratives, Kotre expands upon Erik Erikson's concept of "generativity". This concept means the variety of ways people find to be "fertile" in their lives, from the biological task of leaving a genetic legacy, to the emotional work of nurturing and guiding children, to teaching practical skills, transmitting values, and attempting to enrich their culture.
