I prefer life course to life span because, as Rossi ( 1980) has pointed out, the term life span connotes the work done by developmental psychologists, whereas the term life course initially pertained to the work done by sociologists but has expanded in meaning to include all collaborative work done concerning "the pathways through the age-differentiated structure in the major role domains of life" (p. 7).
References for these differences include: knowing ( Belenky et al. 1986; Lyons 1989), communicating ( Athanassiades 1974; Elshtain 1982; Tannen 1990), growing up and learning ( Gilligan, Lyons, and Hanmer 1989), growing older ( Baruch and Brooks-Gunn 1984b; Clausen 1986; Giele 1982b, 1982c; Long and Porter 1984; Lopata and Barnewolt 1984; Neugarten et al. 1964; Neugarten 1968; Riley 1985, 1986; Rossi 1980, 1985a, 1985b; Rubin 1979; Sinnott 1986), writing ( Abel 1982; Ascher, DeSalvo, and Ruddick 1984; Heilbrun 1988, 1990; Ruddick and Daniels 1977; Woolf 1929), thinking ( Blau 1981; Eisenstein 1983; French 1985; Gilligan 1979, 1980, 1982a, 1982b; Gilligan, Lyons, and Hanmer 1989; Millman and Kanter 1976; J. L. Roberts 1978; Rosenberg 1982; Ruddick 1989; Waithe 1989), teaching and scholarship ( Aisenberg and Harrington 1988; Bowles and Klein 1983; Cook and Fonow 1990; B. Dubois 1983; E. C. Dubois et al. 1985; Langland and Gove 1981; Sacks 1984), managing and leading ( Brown 1979; Freeman 1990; Kanter 1976, 1977a, 1977b, 1989; Powell 1988; Rudd 1982; Watson 1988), doing science ( Bleier 1978, 1984, 1988; Fee 1988; Keller 1982, 1990; Nielsen 1990; Reinharz 1979, 1983; H.
