Many uses of the word fact/ factual/ facticity can be re-written using truth/true, viz. a factual claim is a true claim, a true history is factual, the truth of the matter is the fact of the matter, etc. Again, it might seem right to say that every truth is a fact, which would mean either that the two are convertible, or that factuality contains the set of all true things or truths. But it’s interesting to consider the times when the two cannot be used equivalently.
1.) Factual is not a transcendental.
2.) No one speaks of “a brute truth”.
3.) Facticity is not a divine attribute.
With all the work that “brute facts” are called on to do in contemporary thought, one wishes someone would raise the question why truths aren’t brute. Again, it is interesting to try to imagine what the scholastic response would be to the disputed question of whether facticity is a divine attribute.
