[Autom. eng. transl.] The chapter discusses the relationship, too often overlooked, between generativity and adult identity, showing how it is inscribed in the exchange and transmission between generations. Unlike what is proposed by attachment theory and the psycho-social theories of altruism, the relational-symbolic perspective developed by the author proposes to jointly consider an intra-personal, interpersonal community reading of intergenerational dynamics, in order to understand today's challenges of the construction of adult identity and the resources to deal with it.
