Sep 1, 1976 "Poor Man's Psychoanalysis?": Observation on Dianetics — The Zetetic More: link
The sociology of marginal medicine is a neglected field of endeavor. There exist only a mere handful of brief accounts of unorthodox therapeutic practices and their development in Western societies. I shall seek, therefore, to provide a contribution to this scant literature, in the belief that such studies are not only of intrinsic interest but also provide insight into a number of strains and tensions generated by advanced industrial societies and into some of the less orthodox methods of coping with ...

A bold Borderline personality who remains a controversial figure: From Dianetics to Scientology. Is he a sage or a charlatan? L. RON HUBBARD: AN OPINION AND A SUMMING UP LAFAYETTE RONALD HUBBARD first made news in 1950 with Dianetics, an allegedly new theory of the human mind and behavior, and one which orthodox psychologists and psychiatrists have refused to condone.

Sep 3, 1951 Departure in Dianetics — TIME Magazine
The cult of dianetics, which was going strong a year ago (
TIME, July 24, 1950
), has some of the features of a new religion. Its founder, 'Science-Fictioneer L. Ron Hubbard, claimed that his "science of the mind" could cure all mental and most bodily ills, make supermen of truly devoted converts. Today, dianetics is suffering the standard fate of the cult: one of its earliest adherents has broken away and is accusing Hubbard of having strayed from the true faith. ...
Aug 1, 1951 Boiled Engrams — American Mercury
In May of last year, from the modest little town of Elizabeth, New Jersey, came a voice that promised complete salvation for mankind on this earth. That in itself is nothing new, but this particular voice was a powerful roar, worth at least a footnote in any account of our troubled age. It was the voice of a man by the name of L. Ron Hubbard. Until this moment, Hubbard had been known as a writer of science fiction fantasies. But ...
Apr 1, 1951 Peace of Mind in Dianetics? — Better Homes & Gardens
Frederick L. Schuman
Better Homes & Gardens
I first read with skepticism and the reread with growing interest: Dianetics, The Modern Science of Mental Health, Hermitage House, New York. Let it be clearly understood that Hubbard's neat and exciting theory is not proved, in any genuinely scientific sense, by any documented evidence in the book or anywhere else to date. None of the 275 cases on which Hubbard based his work has been written up in scholarly form. No one has ever "seen" an engram or observed any ...
