Part 5 Aesthetics and Morality Chapter 10. "Good and Beautiful,"213-226.

in this brilliant and provative book, the aesthetic experience is an essential force in human lives and cultures everywhere."

Strengthening Older People's Rights: Towards a UN Convention
Produced as a collaborative effort of nine aging organizations around the world, this report provides arguments and tools for
engaging people across the globe in a discussion of the need for a UN Convention on the Rights of Older Persons.
See especially Elder Rights: Global Action on Aging
Global Action on Aging advocates for the protection of older persons as a key element of the human rights movement.
Increasingly subject to physical and emotional abuse, theft, negative stereotyping and discrimination, older persons
often feel vulnerable and frightened. Older people often face serious discrimination in the workplace. While many
rights issues affect them negatively, older persons are claiming new sets of entitlements, including choice of
sexuality and sexual activity, appropriate housing, innovative care-giving programs, as well as more control over end of life decisions.
Definitions of Age Integrated
A Naturally occurring retirement community—or a NORC (rhymes with “fork”)—is a community that was not originally designed for seniors,
but that has a large proportion of residents who are older adults (at least 60 years old). These communities are not created to meet
the needs of seniors living independently in their homes, but rather evolve naturally, as adult residents age in place.
NORCs may develop in three different ways:
A large number of persons moved into a community when they were younger (i.e., aged in place);
A large number of seniors move into a community (i.e., in-migration); or
Seniors remain in a community as younger residents move out (i.e., out-migration).
