Grice’s ‘Logic and Conversation’

Grice, H.P. (1975), ‘Logic and Conversation’

Formalists vs. Informalists:

  • Divergences in meaning exist between formal devices and natural languages.
  • Philosophers in the formalist camp view elements of meaning in natural languages as imperfections.
  • Informalists hold that the insistence on a perfect language is philosophically unjustified.
