    • 1950, L. Ron Hubbard, Dianetics[1], New Era Publications, published 1999, →ISBN, OCLC 59128428, page 220:
      In psychology, Dianetics drops into line without disturbing anything concerned with staffs or research or teaching posts, for psychology is simply the study of the psyche and now that there exists a science of the psyche it can go ahead with a will. Thus, Dianetics is the enemy of none, and Dianetics falls utterly outside all existing legislation, none of which anticipated or made any provision for a science of mind.
