"Cognitivists attend to past inputs and memory encodings; many humanists refer to long-lost opportunities for growth; and behaviorists consider reinforcement history and immediately preceding stimuli. All consider some form of the past to have primacy over abnormal, and even normal, behaviors in the present. XXXXXXX of the past is also carried into XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX. The origin of abnormality is always the target of treatment, explicitly or implicitly."
Given these considerations, is it surprising that our wish to go back into the past is inseparable from our desire of self-knowledge, or from our understanding of what happened then in order to comprehend what is happening now? Does time travel contain an element of self-cure? And eventually: would time travel -- if possible -- make XXXXXXXX obsolete?
