The demand for technical and academic studies on the phenomenon of longevity suggests new approaches to guide and promote public policies in the economic, social, psychological, and especially in the field of Health.
With¬† the discussion and reflection on aging a new thinking is approached, wich also means transforming the aging process into an object of scientific knowledge, understanding this not only for visibility of population growth, but also and above all, the looks that reveal the interface with the social construction.
