Now 18 LEARNING ABOUT THINGS HUMAN she said, “Well hello! . heelló . . ”, so that her pitch rose and the “hellos” became longer and more stressed on each successive repetition. With each phrase the baby expressed more pleasure, and his body resonated almost like a balloon being pumped up, filling a little more with each breath. The mother then paused and her face relaxed. They watched each other expectantly for a moment. The shared excitement between them ebbed, but before it faded completely, the baby suddenly took an initiative and intervened to rescue it.

This question raises all the problematical issues of innateness versus learning. Whenever we see a set of behaviors that is probably used by all societies in a particular natural human situation, and which has had thousands of generations of evolutionary history to fashion an adaptive purpose, we wonder to what extent its acquisition is built upon some biologically innate base. We can only sneak up on a tentative answer. Certainly the sight of a baby is not an innate releaser in the strictest sense that students of animal behavior use the term—that, on sight, a fixed behavioral pattern will almost invariably be evoked from the adult.

The infant, of course, remains a spectator and the mother the sole player until considerably later. An earlier form of peek-aboo can be played without the use of any screens. It consists simply of a series of presentations of the full face toward the infant’s, interspersed with turning the face to the side, or down, or pulling the head way back, and then representing the full face again, at roughly the same distance as the last presentation. When trying to hold attention or engender delight, much of a mother’s head movement conforms to this simple plan.
