Abstract:     
An International collective research made by Ronald Inglehart and his fellows in many industrial countries indicates that alongside an increase in the tendency of the majority of people towards “immaterialism” Freedom of Speech, Quality of Life and their religiousness has found a minimal form: contentment with basic religious beliefs and self-centered spiritual experiences and the not so strong feeling of obligation to all forms of religious rites and rituals as recommended in Abraham’s religion. The purpose of this paper is to examine whether or not a relationship exists between the religiousness and tendencies of individuals to meta-ethics in the context of the Iranian Society, which is expected to encounter certain complexities. Results indicate that despite researches performed in other countries, in the Iranian society a very weak relationship exists between these two variables. Closer inspection of the materialism- immaterialism factor has indicated that due to the absence of ethical clarity, the mere evaluation of one’s level of tendencies towards either of the two poles of materialism-immaterialism does not result in useful results for analysis purposes.
