Infant crying in hunter-gatherer cultures

  • Hillary N. Fouts (a1), Michael E. Lamb (a1) and Barry S. Hewlett (a2)
Abstract

By synthesizing evolutionary, attachment, and acoustic perspectives, Soltis has provided an innovative model of infant cry acoustics and parental responsiveness. We question some of his hypotheses, however, because of the limited extant data on infant crying among hunter-gatherers. We also question Soltis' distinction between manipulative and honest signaling based upon recent contributions from attachment theory.
