Setting the Stage: `The' Motor-Action Controversy. (Contributors: R.A. Schmidt; E.S. Reed; P.C.W. van Wieringen; P.J. Beek, O.G. Meijer). Complex Movement Behaviour: Empirical Studies. (Contributors: R.J. Bootsma, P.C.W. van Wieringen; T.D. Lee; K.-H. Leist; R.A. Magill; T. Mulder, W. Hulstijn; K. Roth; J.B. Shea, S.T. Zimny; S. Swinnen; W.H. Warren, Jr.; H.T.A. Whiting). Motor and Action Approaches: Theoretical Considerations. (Contributors: H. Heuer; D.S. Young; J.W.I. Tamboer; L. Pickenhain; O.G. Meijer, R.C. Wagenaar, F.C.M. Blankendaal).


The major focus of this book is on the differences between ecological approaches to action (action theories'), and theories on motor control and learning couched in terms of information processing (motor theories').

Proponents of both approaches express their views in Part 1 and the differences between the approaches are further analysed. Part 2 presents empirical studies, while in Part 3, methodological, philosophical and scientific implications are discussed and the possibility of a solution is considered.
