Title: Paul Grice, Philosopher and Linguist
Written By: Siobhan Chapman
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403902976
Description:

Paul Grice (1913-1988) is best known for his psychological account of
meaning, and for his theory of conversational implicature, although these
form only part of a large and diverse body of work. This is the first book
to consider Grice's work as a whole. Drawing on the range of his published
writing, and also on unpublished manuscripts, lectures and notes, Siobhan
Chapman discusses the development of Grice's ideas and relates his work to
the major events of his intellectual and professional life.
