The argument is that following the mother's departure the one-year-old generates from memory the schema of the parent's former presence in the room and compares that knowledge with the present situation and attempts to assimilate the inconsistency inherent in the two schemata. If the child cannot resolve the inconsistency-that is, assimilate the fact of mother absence with the retrieved schema of her former presence-the child becomes uncertain. If the uncertainty persists, the child may cry. The child's ability to remember that the mother had been present a minute earlier-a competence the six-month-old does not have-provokes her to try to understand the differences between past and present and therefore makes her vulnerable to anxiety if she fails.
Understanding, emotion, reason, morality, and freedom have many entries because each has been regarded as a quintessential property of human nature. Each remains a puzzle. Although these impenetrable themes continue to dominate the brooding of modern scholars, the puzzle of human psychological development is a relatively recent addition to the list. The reasons for its emergence as an enigma attracting serious study include historically novel apprehensions, demographic changes in the society, and the discovery of information about the child and its plan of growth.
The examiner then hides the toy under the other cloth-cloth B. The puzzle is that most 9-month-old babies go to cloth A. The conditions that reduce the probability of this error provide a clue to its origin. If the delay between the hiding at cloth B and the opportunity to reach is short (less than a second or two), the error is much less likely to occur. And if the 9month-old child does not make the error with a two-second delay, if the delay is increased to 6 seconds, the error will occur. Indeed, throughout the second half of the first year one can increase the likelihood of the error simply by increasing the delay between the hiding at location B and the time when the child is permitted to reach.
