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 ...

Type: Press
Source: 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 ...

DIANETICS. L. Ron Hubbard, 452 pages. Hermitage House, New York, 1950, $4.-00. Because a considerable mass of non-medical people have been puzzled by this book, and some of them seek the opinion of physicians with respect to its value, it might be an advantage if the physician could have it appraised without being forced to read it. This review, made for that purpose, takes the attitude that Hubbard has not produced any scientific proof to support his theories, and consequently "dianetics ...

[...] Sir: We think, even though your description of the mechanics of Ron Hubbard's Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health [TIME, July 24] is fair and accurate enough, that as a whole your treatment is . . . unduly derisive. While it is probable that there are people who make a cult of dianetics, that fact is irrelevant. The only issue is whether or not it works toward making people more happy and more sane . . .

It is not so much the content of this book which deserves analysis as its effect on the average reader's mind. Dianetics has been steadily climbing on the best-seller list since its publication, and, next to the spectacular success of the Velikovsky book, its popularity is the most frightening proof of the confusion of the contemporary mind and its tendency to fall prey to pseudo-scientific concepts. The book opens with the statement: "The creation of dianetics is a milestone for Man ...
