NEONATIVISM

is the philosophical standpoint that most knowledge, for example some aspects of language are innate and do not require any real-life experience to understand fully or master. Further that cognitive development is a result of biological constraints, not their experience.

NEONATIVISM: "One philosophical debate concerning neonativism argues that some features of life are simply innate and cannot be learnt, one such example being language."
