Full Idea

Revision semantics is arguably the main competitor of Kripke's theory of truth among semantic truth theories. …In the former one may hope through revision to arrive at better and better models, ..sorting out unsuitable extensions of the truth predicate.

Gist of Idea

The main semantic theories of truth are Kripke's theory, and revisions semantics

A Reaction

Halbach notes later that Kripke's theory (believe it or not) is considerably simpler than revision semantics.
