Abstract
In the Russian scientific literature, there are practically no detailed publications of the materials of the MacArthur study of aging, the results of which became the basis for the development of a new direction in gerontology – «successful», «prosperous» aging. The concept of «successful aging» is based on empirical data in the works of D.V. Rowe, R.L. Kahn. This article describes the organization of the MacArthur study of aging and the methods used; the logic of substantiation of the category «successful aging» is given; the contribution of the individual and society to the task of successful aging is shown.

Keywords: usual aging, successful aging, myths about old age, image of old age, gerontology

Column: Developmental psychology
