ABOUT THE

PROJECT

Fragmentation (regarding belief) is roughly the view that a single agent has various separate systems of belief, which need not make for a consistent and deductively closed overall system. But does it make sense to speak of the human mind as fragmented? How can Fragmentation be spelled out in more precise terms? Are there real architectual features of the mind that are best described by a theory of fragmentation? And can a theory of fragmentation help us solve some of philosophy’s perennial problems and puzzles? These are some of the questions we address in the project. More information on our research can be found here.

The project is based at the Institute of Philosophy, University of Graz, and lasts from 2015–2018. It is run by Marian David, Cristina BorgoniDirk Kindermann and Andrea Onofri.
