Composing a Further Life

Author discusses increasing the second-half of adulthood

The kids are out of the house and most of your life goals have been accomplished, so what’s next? Anthropologist Mary Catherine Bateson interviews six older Americans, including Jane Fonda, to find out how they are actively seeking new and exciting ways to live life to the fullest. Bateson, daughter of Margaret Mead, is one of the world’s leading thinkers on the effects of lifelong learning. Listen as she discusses her latest book, Composing a Further Life, with host Mike Cuthbert in this one-hour Prime Time Radio special. 

In this video brief below, Bateson continues her discussion on Composing a Further Life. “People don’t like to be called seniors, elders, old…but one term that people like that they associate with growing older is ‘wisdom,’” says influential author, Mary Catherine Bateson.
