  1. Fehler im Haus der Vernunft.Matthias Vogel - 2009 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 57 (1):73-95.
    The first part of the essay tries to show that Davidson's explanation of irrationality in terms of a fragmentation of the mind is not compatible with interpretationist premises of his own theory. Instead of adopting the conception of two semi-autonomous departments of the mind, I argue for an explanation of strong forms of irrationality based on two kinds of contentful mental states: functionally individuated representational states and states whose content depends on a rationalizing interpretation.
