In 1975 Grice was made full professor at Berkeley, and in the same year he was elected president of the Pacific division of the American Philosophical Association. Now in his sixties, there was no apparent diminution in his restless energy and intellectual enthusiasm. He travelled frequently to speak at conferences, deliver lecture series and lead discussions, mainly within the United States. His reputation benefited from this exposure, and also from the wider dissemination of his work on implicature. He finally published the second and third William James lectures belatedly and apparently reluctantly during the 1970s, under the titles ‘Logic and conversation’ and ‘Further notes on logic and conversation’.1
