Abstract

I thank Rich M. Lerner and his co-authors, Alex von Eye, and Lars R. Bergman for their insightful and interesting commentaries (Bergman, 2015; Lerner, Batanova, Vest Ettekal, & Hunter, 2015; von Eye, 2015). I consider it an honor that these distinguished scientists and esteemed colleagues present their perspectives on my target article (Molenaar, 2015a), inspiring me to delve somewhat deeper into some of the issues they address. While the contents of the target article are limited for the reasons mentioned in it, I will here cast a somewhat wider net.The commentary by Lerner et al. (2015) made me realize that I have to explicate my perspective on relational developmental systems (RDS; Overton, 2015). As is clear from my target article, developmental systems theory (DST) plays an important role in my work and thinking. RDS is a more recent elaboration of DST and therefore deserves due consideration. I should make clear up front, however, that my thoughts about RDS still are developing. I intend to present a more fully elaborated and hopefully coherent discussion of RDS when my thoughts have become crystallized.
