Abstract

A conversation is more than a series of disconnected remarks because it is conducted against a background presumption of cooperation. But what makes it reasonable to presume that one is engaged in a conversation? What makes it reasonable to presume cooperation? This paper considers Grice's two ways of answering this question and argues for the one he discarded. It does so by means of considering a certain problem and analysis of trust.
