Joel Savishinsky, professor emeritus of anthropology
The Wall Street Journal asked Joel Savishinsky about the ways that many retirees socialize when they are no longer in an office environment every day. According to Savishinsky, the home can substitute quite handily. In the example of a retiree who joined his local school board who sometimes needed an adequate venue to discuss sensitive issues there was — “in the words of the cliché—no place like home,” said Savishinsky. “Even the physical act of sitting in an armchair created the emotional ease that helped move the conversation along.” A public place, like a coffee shop or diner, Savishinksy says, would have inhibited the discourse, even if there had been nobody within earshot.
