  Dianetics
Dianetics™ is the name given to a set of principles designed to explain the functioning of the human mind, and as a system for curing some forms of mental and psychosomatic illness.
Dianetics is by some regarded as a pseudoscience, as it presents itself as a "scientific" system of knowledge, yet fails to meet the requirements of the scientific method.
Dianetics is the seed from which the philosophical framework of Scientology grew, and on this basis the book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health is often jokingly referred to as The Old Testament by Scientologists.

 Dianetics
Hubbard tells the reader that dianetics "...contains a therapeutic technique with which can be treated all inorganic mental ills and all organic psycho-somatic ills, with assurance of complete cure...." He claims that he has discovered the "single source of mental derangement" (Hubbard 6).
There are broad hints that this so-called science of the mind isn't a science at all in the claim that dianetics is built on "definite axioms" and in his a priori notion that a science of mind must find a single source of mental and psychosomatic ills.
The goal of dianetic therapy is to bring about a "release" or a "clear." The former has had major stress and anxiety removed by dianetics; the latter has neither active nor potential psycho-somatic illness or aberration (Hubbard, 170).
