Abstract:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced title.

New Edition

'Chapman has performed a great service for us all by organizing and
distilling Grice's numerous unpublished notes and unresolved
collaborations.' - Christopher Potts, MIND

'...a very significant contribution to the expanding field of Gricean
pragmatics (and its neo- and post-variants) for two reasons: it is the
first book-length treatment of the whole of Grice's philosophy, including
his work on ethics and rationality, and it is the first to make systematic
use of the significant unpublished materials of the Grice archives. Let me
state immediately that I believe the book is excellent...' - Journal of
Pragmatics

Paul Grice is best known for a few short articles that have been hugely
influential in philosophy and particularly in linguistics. However, these
form only a small part of a wide-ranging body of work covering meaning,
reference, logic, metaphysics and ethics. This is the first book-length
study of Grice's work as a whole. It draws on both published and
unpublished material to demonstrate the development of, but also the
essential coherence of, Grice's thinking. Siobhan Chapman discusses his
lesser-known writings and reconsiders the ideas for which he is best known,
particularly the theory of conversation, in the context of his work as a
whole. She considers Grice's ideas in terms of their impact, particularly
on the development of pragmatics, and assesses Grice's work in the context
of the time in which it was written, examining how it was shaped by his
personal philosophical influences and career, and by his character.
