  5. Tales from the Crypt: On the Role of Death in Life.Sheldon Solomon, Jeff Greenberg & Tom Pyszczynski - 1998 - Zygon 33 (1):9-43.
    An existential psychodynamic theory is presented based on Ernest Becker's claim that self‐esteem and cultural worldviews function to ameliorate the anxiety associated with the uniquely human awareness of vulnerability and mortality. Psychological equanimity is hypothesized to require (1) a shared set of beliefs about reality that imbues the universe with stability, meaning, and permanence; (2) standards by which individuals can judge themselves to be of value; and (3) promises of safety and the transcendence of death to those who meet the (...)

    Souls do not live by cognitive inclinations alone, but by the desire to exist beyond death as well.Jeff Greenberg, Daniel Sullivan, Spee Kosloff & Sheldon Solomon - 2006 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (5):474-475.
    Bering's analysis is inadequate because it fails to consider past and present adult soul beliefs and the psychological functions they serve. We suggest that a valid folk psychology of souls must consider features of adult soul beliefs, the unique problem engendered by awareness of death, and terror management findings, in addition to cognitive inclinations toward dualistic and teleological thinking.

    The role of mortality concerns in separation and connection effects: comment on Lee and Schwarz.Dylan E. Horner & Jeff Greenberg - 2021 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 44.
    Using terror management theory and research findings, we expand the framework provided by Lee and Schwarz to highlight the potential link between separation and connection effects to existential, death-related concerns. Specifically, we address how death awareness may motivate separation and connection behaviors and how engaging in these behaviors may serve a protective terror management function.

    The motivational underpinnings of religion.Mark Jordan Landau, Jeff Greenberg & Sheldon Solomon - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (6):743-744.
    Terror management theory and research can rectify shortcomings in Atran & Norenzayan's (A&N's) analysis of religion. (1) Religious and secular worldviews are much more similar than the target article supposes; (2) a propensity for embracing supernatural beliefs is likely to have conferred an adaptive advantage over the course of evolution; and (3) the claim that supernatural agent beliefs serve a terror management function independent of worldview bolstering is not empirically supported.

    Investigating the Role of Normative Support in Atheists’ Perceptions of Meaning Following Reminders of Death.Melissa Soenke, Kenneth E. Vail & Jeff Greenberg - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 13.
    According to terror management theory, humans rely on meaningful and permanence-promising cultural worldviews, like religion, to manage mortality concerns. Prior research indicates that, compared to religious individuals, atheists experience lower levels of meaning in life following reminders of death. The present study investigated whether reminders of death would change atheists’ meaning in life after exposure to normative support for atheism. Atheists were either reminded of death or a control topic and exposed to information portraying atheism as either common or rare, (...)
