Inglehart synthesizes previous research on reactions to critical life events and proposes a new generalized principle of cognitive consistency, which integrates elements of cognitive consistency theory and attribution theory. This new theoretical approach offers several significant advantages over existing theories of reactions to critical life events, Inglehart argues, particularly in terms of its contribution to our understanding of the importance of specific moderator variables such as social support and individual differences.
