Historical Who is Who
1911 - 1986
Writer of science fiction and originator of the Church of Scientology based on beliefs set out in the book Dianetics. He claimed that Scientology provides a rational philosophy of life which will eliminate emotional ‘hang-ups’ and conceptual confusions. The claim is reinforced by extensive literature and elaborate training routines; these have attracted many thousands of adherents. Critics argue that Scientology is little more than a questionable form of psychotherapy, very costly for its subscriber and lucrative for the organisation.
