Jan 30, 2008 Malignant narcissism, L. Ron Hubbard, and Scientology's policies of narcissistic rage
Stephen A. Kent
Jodi M. Lane
In this article, we argue that Scientology’s founder, L. Ron Hubbard, likely presented a personality disorder known as malignant narcissism, and then we establish that this disorder probably contributed to his creation of organizational policies against perceived enemies that reflected his narcissistic rage. We illustrate our argument by discussing Hubbard’s creation of an internal Scientology organization called the Guardian’s Office, which carried out a sustained and covert attack against a Scientology critic, Paulette Cooper. This attack, and the Scientology policies that ...

Finance and Commerce Daily (Minnesota)
The building at 505 N. Wabasha St. in downtown St. Paul isn't your average piece of property.

When it opened in 1977, the building was the new home of the Science Museum of Minnesota. After the Science Museum moved to its new home along Kellogg Boulevard in 1999, the Minnesota Business Academy took up residence in the building. The academy closed ...

Despite feeling upbeat and mostly unconcerned about the upcoming event, I kept getting these recurring attacks of wooziness; small but disorienting brain clouds of differing strength and unknown ...

Journal of the American Academy of Religion
Hugh B. Urban is an Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the Department of Comparative Studies, Ohio State University, 431 Hagerty Hall, Columbus, OH 43210.

Remarkably, however, it has rarely been subjected to serious, critical study by historians of religions, in large part because of the ...
