    Abstract

    There are many different ideas of understanding in the experimental economics literature, leading to much debate and conflict between various methodological positions. It is argued that a Gricean approach to the notion of understanding is one which makes most sense in the context of experimentation and provides a robust theoretical background for assessing understanding in practical experiments.
