A Thorough Analysis of L. Ron Hubbard’s Formulation of Therapy and Religion in Dianetics and Scientology, 1950–1986
This paper analyzes the interrelations between therapy and religion in Dianetics and Scientology as represented and re-represented by L. Ron Hubbard in The Technical Bulletins. Other Dianetics and Scientology books from the years 1950–1986 have been included in the analysis where elaboration is needed in order to understand Hubbard’s development of ideas as they appear in the bulletins.
