Good that B. Aune agrees with D. Frederick -- I love an argument. I have
since composed "A logician's landscape" and of course in our discussions of
the _best_ of Oxford philosophy we should never forget the interactions of
B. Aune when visiting the dreaming spires, and his first-experience with
Grice and the playgroup (or what was left of it, after Austin's demise).
Chapman makes a bit about the death of Austin. I wonder if it shocked
Grice to _learn_ that the man was dying. Apparently it was all very sudden. I
wonder for how long before Austin died Grice knew. I would have been
devastated to _learn_!
--- (And S. Bayne -- thanks for the tidbit about the 'nasty' note by G.
E. M. A. to the student -- and don't you doubt! Anscombe is LOVING you from
Heavens Above for the work you've done with her!)
Of course the title provocative of _this_ post. No, there is _no_ Oxford
style, really, and I'm sure what Warnock/Grice and others were doing was
possibly having analogues elsewhere, notably inspired to 'challenge' some of
Ayer's dogmatisms in "Empirical Theory of Knowledge"
In the case of Roxbee Cox -- I'll systematise him as 'post-Gricean' even!
J. W. Roxbee Cox
I feel that my previous was in a too familiar tone. I apologise for that.
In any case, after a quick search about "Harold Cox" -- in an online
"Oxford Made Me", I read about him. Born in Glasgow, took his life.
A fascinating character as that online link reads.
So this as a re-consideration of J. Roxbee Cox -- who I till today, I
guess -- thought was the "Cox" cited by Owen in the obit. of Ryle.
Some info on Jeremy W. Roxbee Cox then:
He is cited by Sibley -- (a great author -- his papers now publ. by
Clarendon along with a festschrift or memorial volume).
COX, J. R. W. "Distinguishing the Senses"-- Mind, 1970.
citing Grice 1962.
-- cfr. Grice, "Some remarks about the senses" -- in Butler, 1962
Coady, "The sense of Martians" (citing Grice 1962)
I should try a search in the Philosopher's Index to get the detail of the
J. W. R. Cox peace in the Sibley but I'm sure he cites Grice (1961) and it's
about the 'causal' theory of perception.
