Paul Grice on Conversational Implicatures

I'm posting Grice's "Logic and Conversation" as a recommended reading. We're going over it in some detail in class in connection with Kripke's response to Donnellan, and Kripke's hard enough, so I chose not to require the Grice reading. But it is a classic and Grice's ideas here have been widely influential not just in philosophy but also in linguistics and artificial science.

(The print is ugly in the linked copy; I'm sure with some digging you could find a nicer one if you tried.)
