Grice’s “Meaning”

The most recent edition of Teorema celebrates the fiftieth anniversary this year of the publication of the hugely important paper ‘Meaning’ by Paul Grice. I have contributed an article, ‘”Meaning”: Philosophical Forebears and Linguistic Descendants’, in which I trace some of the influences on Grice’s thinking and also consider how these influences, via Grice’s work, have fed into linguistics.

Paul Grice and the philosophy of ordinary language

I’ve recently submitted an article with the above title to appear in Meaning and Analysis: themes from H. Paul Grice, a new collection of essays on Grice’s work being edited by Klaus Petrus.

Klaus is a Director of a research group at the University of Berne that is currently running a number of projects based on Grice’s work.
