Herbert Paul Grice and Charles Sanders Peirce


What motivated Grice to choose, out of ALL philosophers in the world, Peirce to educate his Oxford tutees on?

God wonders!

In any case, Peirce proved educational to Grice, 'krypto-technical' and all!

We can trace many ideas by Grice on meaning, communication, implicature, disimplicature, intention, and beyond -- to these set of lectures by Grice on Peirce.

What the students thought of them is an altogether different matter!
