In this book, linguists and philosophers combine to offer a unique insight not only into Grice's contribution to philosophy of language, but on his theories of natural and non-natural meaning, implicatures and the semantic-pragmatic distinction.
KLAUS PETRUS is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Berne, Switzerland.
