1 2 3 Aug 1, 1951 Dianetics // A critical appraisal of a best-selling book that originated in the realm of science-fiction and became the basis for a new cult — Consumer Reports
Dianetics is the title of a book (and a "science") which, for many months, held its place as a best seller in the non-fiction field. According to its originator and to thousands of dianetics adherents, it is "the new Modern Science of Mental Health." Dianetic research institutes have been founded in many cities, with the dual purpose of studying mental and psychosomatic ills in the light of dianetic theories, and of training potential practitioners or "auditors" to treat sick people by ...

THERE'S BEEN NOTHING like it since Canasta, Aimee McPherson, and the Pyramid Clubs. It's the new "science"—some call it cult—of dianetics, called by its founder and major prophet, L. (for Lafayette) Ron Hubbard, 39, "the most clearly presented method of psychotherapy and self-improvement ever invented." Not one to court undue modesty, Hubbard flatly compares the creation of dianetics to the discovery of fire and the wheel. Hubbard's crusade started last May with the publication of a 452-page book (now known to ...
