Once generated, inhibitions inhibit the development of a person's unique potentials for fulfillment and human relationships. It is exceedingly difficult for a person to transcend an inhibition on their own, without the support of and acceptance of important others within loving social relationships. Intellectual considerations and discussions are ineffective means for transcending inhibitions. Discussions of inhibitions in the abstract lead to abstract conclusions, not to decisions and affective changes which transcend the inhibitions. Inhibitions are transcended most effectively via a social process which is an antidote to the social process which generated the inhibition. Inhibitions often have to do with trying to avoid rejection by the important other persons in one's life. When the important others practice conditional acceptance, inhibitions develop to try to meet those conditions. Those conditions become introjected and help form the conscience which punishes with guilt and shame any failure to meet the conditions. The fear of rejection of self by self, due to the programmed conscience, inhibits the self. Rational analysis will not point the way out of the prison of such knowledge of good and evil which we call con- science. The prison which knowledge (science) created cannot be transcended by more knowledge. No poison is its own antidote. More science is not the antidote to the misuse of science. Inhibitions are the result of the misuse of the knowledge of good and evil; the result of rejecting others on the basis of the definition of what constitutes good behavior, and what constitutes evil behavior; i.e., morality and ethics. Inhibitions can be reduced most effectively via unconditional acceptance and the acceptance of unconditional acceptance. Unconditional self-acceptance is near impossible without unconditional acceptance by an important other person first. For this reason, the reduction of inhibitions is a social process rather than a process of self-improvement on an individualistic basis. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
