Hubbard 1950: Dianetics TMSMH

Dianetics, The Modern Science of Mental Health

BY L. RON HUBBARD
Published in 1950

I hold a Master’s degree in Nuclear Engineering from M.I.T. I am also conversant with Buddhism. I spent 12 years in Sea Org of Scientology from 1971 to 1983. I believe I am qualified to critique DIANETICS.

I am writing my critique one chapter at a time. Please follow the links to see the comments.
