A society in which food production is entirely dependent upon the labor of the women (as among the Alor [48, pp. ]) will force upon its infants a prolonged separation from their mothers at an extremely early age, while the mothers are laboring in the fields, and will substitute eare by somewhat unwilling surrogates (often older sisters) who, in any ease, are nonlaetating. Prolonged oral frustration is a regular part of the experience of sueh infants and results in charaeter traits whieh are not striven for as desirable in that eulture, but whieh are the outeome of specifie cultural cireumstanees.

Cultures may differ radicaIly, one from another, in respect to many of their specific traits, and any culture may be regarded as a more or less fixed entity for any given generation of parents, although cultures actually change as time goes on. Such change is usually slow and gradual, though instances are known of sudden, drastic change. In any case, parents most commonly attempt to train their offspring for adequate participation in the culture as it currently exists. Thus the details of training will vary, depending upon the precise nature of the culture as it is understood by the parents.

Both produce anxiety, though perhaps of not quite the same order: if a threat to somatic survival can be obviated by accepting humiliation (loss of self-esteem), the latter is generally chosen as the lesser of two evils.
