identity theory of predication
(or truth) Theory articulated by Bradley, according to which there is no division between a true proposition and the fact making it true. The idea is the outcome both of Bradley's belief that only a world-sized whole can really be true (there is strictly no such thing as partial truth), and his idealist denial of a distinction between the knowing subject and what it is that is known.
