There are substantial cultural and individual differences in our patterns of living and aging. However, children and older adults were traditionally considered largely prisoners of their natures and their society. Only young and middle-aged adults were considered able to shape their own destiny, transcend their psychological past, achieve autonomy and maturity, and contribute to their communities and their cultures. Recently, behavioral and social scientists challenged these views and began to examine their basis and impact on our life spans. This chapter is concerned with how our autonomy and relatedness interact with our different circumstances and life patterns throughout our lives.
