Does Mortality Salience Always Lead to Materialism? the Interplay Between Terror Management Theory and Just World Hypothesis
We argue that mortality salience leads to materialism only when people perceive their death as injustice and attempt to compensate. If they perceive their death justice compared to others, however, this materialism will not occur. This paper provides a conceptual framework to examine the boundary conditions of terror management theory.
