Chapter Summary

This chapter investigates what societies-especially by way of a comparison between Germany and Japan-can learn from each other and what can be done to provide for the present and the future. It presents an overview of the analytic points relevant to ageing societies and ageing as a so-called 'societal problem'. The chapter focuses on the challenges of dealing with ageing societies in social discourses and used measures. It stresses perspectives concerning the future; that is, the demands to draw out a model of a society of socially balanced longevity based on a political philosophy of living and ageing. .
