[Chapter 2 describes the scope and limitations of theoretical and empirical research dedicated to the origins and nature of literature concerning adjustment to aging. These entail a body of theories, concepts, underlying relationships and research methods that can be very useful as we attempt to comprehend the development of the present and forthcoming cohorts of older adults in old age. The consideration of theoretical models in this chapter contributes to the understanding of current discussions about adjustment to aging. Additionally, the findings present no consensus in the literature to date concerning the role of this construct, and support the view that gerontology needs solid groundwork for the concept of adjustment to aging.]
