Yet another theory

E.H.Erikson divided life into eight linear and chronological phases, with the final, eighth phase being the most important, when one’s summarizing his or her life. Poles in that phase are Despair and Integrity. If the man in this phase is leaning towards Integrity, he can say that he didn’t live in vain. I’d like to see those who are well-adjusted while dying, unless they’re some kind of fanatics.
