The aim of this chapter is to criticize Thomas Baldwin's claim that in developing an identity theory of truth F. H. Bradley was following Hegel. It is argued that Baldwin has incorrectly understood certain passages from Hegel which he cites in defense of this view, and that Hegel's conception of truth in these passages was material, not propositional — that is, it concerned the identity of an object and its concept, not a proposition and object being referred to in that proposition.

Keywords:   F. H. Bradley, Thomas Baldwin, truth, identity theory of truth, propositional truth, material truth
