"There has to be in the subject a ground which makes it possible for our representations to originate the way they do and not in a different way in which they refer to objects which are not yet given. That ground is innate."--"Ueber eine Entdeckung" (1790) by Immanuel Kant, cited in Philosophical Darwinism

Innate is a term which refers to behavior which is inborn, native and natural; meaning originating in, or derived from, the constitution of the intellect, as opposed to acquired from experience. Behaviors can be either innate or learned.

Nature versus nurture is a popular phrase used to describe debates over the relative degrees to which one's genetic makeup (nature) and one's life experiences (nurture) influence one's traits or attributes.

Etymology

From Latin innāscor (“be born in, grow up in”), from in (“in, at on”) + nāscor (“be born”); see natal, native.
