Since "Dianetics" became a national craze, Americans are asking: // Can we doctor our minds at home? // ... but psychiatrists think there may be danger in dianetics — Oakland Tribune

Type: Press
Author(s): W. A. Sprague, Roland Wild

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 ...

Book is clever, disarming — Post-Standard

To the Editor of the Post-Standard: It has now been six months since the publication of "Dianetics—The Modern Science of Mental Health," by L. Ron Hubbard. That it is well written and provocative is indicated by its present status as a best seller in the non-fiction class. That the arguments presented are cogent to a considerable extent is shown by the failure of critics to deal with them. According to "Dianetics" the mind has two parts, the analytical or "conscious" mind, ...

Hollywood has a cure-all — Sydney Morning Herald (Australia)
Type: Press

LOS ANGELES.—The latest craze in Hollywood—and therefore in a substantial part of America—is known as dianetics. It is described as "the new science of the mind," and the poor man's psycho-analysis"; and it has caused more of a commotion in the film city than anything since kidney-shaped swimming pools. DIANETICS is claimed to be a cure for alcoholism, colds, ulcers, and bad films; and a means of reducing Hollywood divorce and suicide rates. It preaches the belief that a patient can ...

'Dianetics' - For seekers of prefabricated happiness — Herald Tribune
Type: Press
Author(s): Erich Fromm
Source: Herald Tribune
Never have people been more interested in psychology and the art of living than today. The appeal which books dealing with these subjects have is a symptom of a serious concern with the human rather than with the material aspects of living. But among these books are some which satisfy the need for rational guidance and others appealing to readers who look for prefabricated happiness and miracle cures. Dianetics is the latest in this series of books and the author uses ...

[...] 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 . . . Sane ...

The Dianetics craze — The New Republic

Type: Press
Author(s): Martin Gumpert
Source: The New Republic
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 ...

DIANETICS: THE MODERN SCIENCE OF MENTAL HEALTH. By L. Ron Hubbard. Hermitage House. $4. ORDINARILY, a new book which offers a generalized cure for all the ills of mankind — guaranteed, within twenty hours — would not be reviewed in these columns. This new book on "Dianetics," by L. Ron Hubbard, however, is in a class by itself. In the first place, the author seems honestly to believe what he has written. His own powerful conviction, in turn, seems to have ...

Of Two Minds — TIME Magazine
Type: Press
Source: TIME Magazine
A new cult is smoldering through the U.S. underbrush. Its name: dianetics. Last week its bible, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, was steadily climbing the U.S. bestseller lists. Demand was especially heavy on the West Coast. Bookstores in Los Angeles were selling Dianetics on an under-the-counter basis. Armed with the manual, which they called simply "The Book," fanatical converts overflowed Saturday night meetings in Hollywood, held dianetics parties, formed clubs, and "audited" (treated) each other. In many ways, dianetics-("the ...
