Originally written and published in national magazines to coincide with the release of Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, here is L. Ron Hubbard’s own story of his developmental trail and two-decade journey to the discovery of the Reactive Mind.
Evolution of a Science contains the only account of:How the optimum computing machine—the mind—works How Mr. Hubbard discovered Basic Personality How the Dynamic Principle of Existence—SURVIVE!—was first isolated How wrong answers enter into the mind and are held down, giving further wrong answers How there seem to be “Demons” of the mind How the engram was discovered How Dianetics techniques were developed
That’s why Evolution of a Science is the story of the greatest adventure of all—the exploration that discovered the Reactive Mind and the technology to conquer it. He wrote it so you would know.

WOU! I love how Mr Hubbard explained in this book how our mind works from very scientific perspective! Amazing work!
Ok, Here is the deal. The data in this book works. It is functional. I originally read it about 40 years ago, and decided to pursue Dianetics and Scientology from there. Have not been disappointed so far....Here is a simple truth from the book - The mind avoids pain in the past in the same manner that it avoids pain in the present -.....Now just think about that for a bit...When I read that, and really got the full import of it, I was floored. Why?... Well, how much time and effort have we all taken to figure ourselves out... If you have not tried at all then you are either a perfect human being, or you are unconscious...Anyway - I realized why my previous attempts to resolve personal problems were not fully, or even partially effective. And that is only ONE of the insightful data in the book....Remember, this was written around 1950 as a pop magazine article. I did not mind the style at all and as long as it served to make the concepts communicate, that was fine with me....So, bottom line - If I d retained my skepticism and NOT gotten into the book, I d be much, much the worse for it... I have a lot to be thankful for in my life now, due to Hubbard s works. Give them a fair chance.. Read the book to understand what is in the book. I think you will be happy you did. Thanks.
