From the first day we are born to the last breath, we tend to observe and use all of our other senses to understand what goes on around us. Going back to birth as a baby, babies try to imitate what they see. For example children like to pretend and play on the phone. They do not understand the concept of the phone yet, but see people around them speaking on the phone. Over time a child’s brain starts to gather all the information from their surroundings and learn from what they see. I believe that we get ideas from outside of us and are not innate. 
According to John Locke he believed that all knowledge comes from experience and a humans mind at birth is a “blank tablet”. (pg.153) Knowledge is fed through education and everything else that is around you. If a child is born in the wild, he will adapt and learn how to live with out supermarkets. John Locke talks about how there is only two types of experiences, sensation and reflection.  The mind is able to take in sensation through what you can see and touch with your hands. Also, when listening to your surroundings you can even tell someones mood in the tone of voice they use. Even tasting different foods can make you feel a sensation. You learn through experience which types of foods you will like and not like by having to taste them first. Reflection gives you the ability to think about your life, memories, and even doubt any of your mistakes, or overthink a decision. What both sensation and reflection have in common is that they both are learned from the moment you are born, and they are not learned through recollection. Everything is learned from observing and experiences you encounter over time. 
Rene Descartes had different points of view of innate. According to Descartes, he said “I am certain that I can have no knowledge of what is outside me except by means of the ideas I have within me”. Descartes understanding of innate are by his three ways of ideas; innate ideas, adventitious ideas, and factitious ideas. Descartes believes  that the mind is born with ideas, knowledge, and believes. Descartes also discovered that God was innate due to the fact that no person is able to use any of their senses to tell if he is real or not. Plato, another philosopher also believed in recollection, the idea  that knowledge is already inside of you and you just need to be reminded.  He also explained that we get in touch with our bodies and senses by our thoughts. Socrates who was a founder of the western philosophy, gave an example of how knowledge had to be recollected. Socrates used a boy who had never been to school and had knowledge of not much. Socrates then drew a square and asked the boy if he knew if it was a square, and so on Socrates asked the boy more simple elementary basic arithmetic. After all off the questions Socrates asked the boy is able to answer He believes the boy already knew how to do what he was asking, and he was only helping the boy remember what he already knew.
I believe that from cave men who had no language, but where still able to communicate and adjust to there surroundings. It shows that cave men where able to communicate through finger paintings, which where objects of what they would see. It was after that they would only be able to describe the object. After time it got easier to understand one another. Once they had found a way to communicate then it was thought to other. It started from two to three people then from bigger groups. After million of years after there has been schools that have thought through over time. It all started from the beginning of someones birth to your own life to you’re own experiences. In Socrates’ point of view showing the boy the right questions to get the answer is just a beginning of  your brain thinking of all the possibilities that you have experienced in my opinion. Even the slightest connection to anything you do not know can be learned through experience. I believe Socrates was doing more of the teaching then just letting the boy answer the problem on his own. Many things may seem new or hard to understand but I believe that there is a solution for any problem, and must learn it all through experience.
