An Examination of a Gricean Account of Language

The Gricean account of language is at the center of much current work in the philosophy of language and the philosophy of mind. Anita Avramides maintains that Grice's paradigm can be used to defend very different conceptions of mind and of meaning. In this clearly argued book she describes Grice's analysis of meaning and proposes two interpretations of it, one reductive and one nonreductive.Much current work in cognitive science assumes that the content of words and thoughts can be explained in naturalistic terms.
