Scientology

Robin Scott was born in London in 1948 to a distinguished intellectual family. He was the top classics scholar of his year at Rugby School in 1962, and graduated from Oxford University in 1970, where he specialised in Religious Philosophy. In 1973 he joined the Church of Scientology’s elite Sea Organisation, and worked full-time for eight years, latterly as a senior executive in the UK and at their international headquarters in Florida. He was ordained as a Minister of Religion in 1976. He has practiced Yoga for thirty years, and was described by GQ magazine as ‘the Cannabis Guru’.

In 1983, Robin and his wife Adrienne resigned and became leading critics of the Church of Scientology’s abuses, setting up their own independent centre in Scotland, resulting in many years of litigation, harassment and intimidation from the Church. From 2010 onwards, Robin became active on Facebook, contributing to the ongoing exposures and debates about this controversial subject. This book contains the full story of their relationship with the Church, and his description and conclusions about the workability of Scientology, which he still believes contains many valuable and important techniques.

The first academically-qualified first-hand intellectual analysis of the applied religious philosophy, Scientology, from someone who played a pivotal role in exposing the abuses of the Church of Scientology, while maintaining a high regard for the workability of the basic technology, fully explained in this book …
