H.P. Grice is a distinguished philosopher predominantly known for his influential contributions to the philosophy of language, but that is only one strand in a rich tapestry of ideas bearing on the philosophy of mind, ethics, and metaphysics as well. Some of the essays in this collection of original papers by leading philosophers edited by Grandy and Warner develop Grice's earlier work in the philosophy of language, but most of them discuss or present his newer and less-known work. Together they demonstrate the unified and powerful character of his thoughts on being, mind, meaning, and morals. An introductory essay provides some of the first overview of Grice's thought, and makes explicit some of the relations among the essays. Grice's substantial response is followed by nineteen contributed papers whose authors include Donald Davidson, Stephen Schiffer, John Searle, and P.F. Strawson. The Times Literary Supplement writes of Grice: 'the only leader of whom it is true that the level of the discipline would be raised if most philosophers took him as a model of how to think and write.' This paperback edition replaces the hardback, published March 1986

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Not well known outside the philosophical fraternity, Paul Grice is influential and admired within it ... he is without peer as an example of how to do philosophy directly, simply, and without idiosyncracy ... the only leader of whom it is true that the level of the discipline would be raised if most philosophers took him as their model of how to think and write.' Times Literary Supplement
'The essays are of very high quality both intrinsically and as aids in understanding Grice's work...' Choice, October 1986
