The article considers theoretical approaches to the scientific research of intellectual development during the period of gerontogenesis, it is noted that this problem is expressed in numerous theories, a number of provisions of which presuppose scientific discussions. It is noted that despite the fact that the problem of intellectual development is one of the most researched in modern psychological science, the least explored are the aspects related to the development of intellect during the period of gerontogenesis and, in particular, the ability of a person to realize his intellectual potential at a later age. Attention is focused on the need for a multiscientific approach to solve this problem, including by gerontologists and gerontopsychologists. The analysis of scientific works devoted to the peculiarities of the intellectual development of a person in the final period of ontogenesis allows us to conclude that while studying the specifics of the intellectual development of a person in later life, a significant part of researchers, noting the tendency to decrease intellectual abilities in ontogeny, ignores the fact of social deprivation of people of late age in modern society that can have a decisive impact on realization of a person's intellectual potential during the period of aging and old age. The results of analysis of the scientific literature on the above topic allow us to conclude that, researchers consider the intellect, primarily as an instrument for acquiring new knowledge, as evidenced by numerous tests on IQ, some of which not only exclude the definition of a person's verbal abilities and the general level of his erudition, but also ignore theories about the types of nervous system, defining as a factor of tasks performance success the limited time of their performance. The urgency of the problem under consideration is due to demographic changes, expressed in the tendency to increase the proportion of people of post-retirement age in society and the need, in this regard, to build a society of psychologically comfortable coexistence for all ages.
