The theoretical position taken in the contributions to this volume are summarized using the distinction between prescriptive and natural physical approaches to the study of development. This summarizing step gives rise to a consideration of a central, but neglected issue: how can developmental transitions be explained? This epilogue ends by pointing out some of the future challenges that confront the study of movement coordination in a developmental perspective.
