Intention, Convention, and Principle in the Failure of Gricean Theory
H. P. Grice's theory of implicature provides the leading paradigm for
research in pragmatics. Wayne Davis argues controversially that Gricean
theory does not work. In developing his argument the author explains that
the psycho-social principles actually define the social function of
implicature conventions, which contribute to the satisfaction of those
principles. By offering a searching and systematic critique of one of the
established doctrines in the philosophy of language, this challenging book
will be of particular importance to philosophers of language and linguists,
especially those working in pragmatics and sociolinguistics.
