I am trying to add a material, but after selecting the object I want to add the material to (or selecting anything for that matter), and I click on the materials tab in the properties view, nothing is listed. The entire window is completely blank.

Scroll up and you'll find it there (take a look at the scroll bar, it's scrolled down) :) – DJK Feb 15 '13 at 20:24
Thanks! I can't believe I missed that. It seems to be by default scrolled down. Haha – JVE999 Feb 17 '13 at 1:04
Gosh, absolutely the same here. :D Thank you, @DJK! (Why haven't you answered this in a proper A?) – OpaCitiZen Jul 9 '13 at 17:32
I did same mistake oh my god :) – mertyildiran Mar 18 '15 at 4:26

Scroll up. Occasionally, the material panel is scrolled down by default, hiding all the options, as can be seen on the scroll bar in your image.

Full credit to DJK for this; I just put it in answer format.
