Robert M. Lindner (May 14, 1914 – February 27, 1956) was an American author and psychologist, best known as the author of the 1944 book Rebel Without A Cause: The Hypnoanalysis of a Criminal Psychopath, from which the title of Nicholas Ray's 1955 film was adopted. In his book, he described a psychopath as someone who is "incapable of exertions for the sake of others". Lindner's arguments on gambling psychology are highly regarded and have been noted as "definitive statements" by the American Academy of Political and Social Science.
