H.P. Grice

Table of contents

Paul Grice is one of those remarkable twentieth-century philosophers’ philosophers who have greatly influenced styles of philosophical thinking (and writing) without ever, or so it seems, gaining even the slightest form of notoriety outside the academic fraternity. In this capacity, he is in the company of equally ‘unmemorable’, more or less contemporaneous, thinkers like J.L. Austin, A.J. Ayer, G.E. Moore, or Gilbert Ryle, most of them based, at one time or another, in Oxford, and most of whom were actively – though in some cases only indirectly or even adversely – involved in the development of something like a world center of ‘ordinary language’ philosophy.
