Principle of Relevance and Optimal Thinking: Explorations into and Questions about Relevance Theory

XU Sheng-huan (Faculty of Foreign Languages, Henan University, Kaifeng 475001, China)  
This paper discusses Relevance Theory within the framework of two dimensions: the dimension of the technical relation of man and language, and that of social relations between man and man, laying emphasis on the contributions made to the pragmatic studies and at the same time raising some questions. The paper falls into five sections, which investigate respectively the relation between Principle of Relevance (PR) and optimal thinking, the comparison between PR and CP, the contributions made by Relevance Theory to pragmatic studies with respect to the scientific research methods, and the question of the possible asymmetry of the expectation of relevance.
