The 2nd Fragmentation Workshop: Developments in Philosophy and Psychology is organised by the research project The Fragmented Mind and will take place at the University of Graz, Austria, on May 6-7, 2016. Keynote speakers will be Agustín Rayo (MIT) and Daniel Greco (Yale).

Fragmentation, or compartmentalisation, 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. This notion of fragmentation has been developed and employed in the work of Cherniak, Lewis, and Stalnaker, and has more recently been advertised by philosophers such as Egan, Elga, Greco, Rayo, among others. Despite great advances, many fundamental questions regarding the status of the fragmentation hypothesis, its explanatory benefits, and the details of a fleshed-out theory of fragmentation remain open. The objective of this workshop is to investigate ways of developing the fragmentation hypothesis and to evaluate its explanatory merits and limits.
