Citation
Description The text is focused on spatio-temporal aspects of the phenomenon of aging. It analyses everydayness and routine activities as described by young-old people from the Czech Republic within in-depth interviews conducted on the subject of reflection of daily activities in the context of a combination of different social roles. The aim of the text is to answer two interrelated questions: 1) what is the most fundamental influence of the temporal and spatial character of their days, and 2) how, in the context of spatio-temporal experience, they relate to the aging process itself.
