About this product
- DescriptionHumans automatically categorize others in social perception. Some categorizations - race, gender, and age -- are so automatic that they are termed primitive categories. As we categorize, we develop stereotypes about the categories. Researchers know much about racism and sexism, but comparatively little about prejudice based on age.
- Author BiographyTodd D. Nelson is the Gemperle Foundation Distinguished Professor of Psychology at California State University - Stanislaus. His research focuses on the impact of ageism on older persons. Specifically, he is interested in understanding and how age prejudice, stereotyping, and discrimination at the individual and societal level influence how older people feel about themselves and the future.
