Title: Paul Grice
Subtitle: Philosopher and Linguist
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=266380
Description:

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unpublished material to demonstrate the development of, but also the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.
