Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Sensory Impressions, philosophy: the concept of impression is intended to serve as a boundary to the concept of perception. It places the weight on information not yet processed on the side of the receiving subject. Perception, on the other hand, refers to prepared information, which allows classification, storage and evaluation. See also stimuli, perception, sensations, input, information, qualia.

Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.

McDowell I 167
Phenomena/Davidson: exert a rational influence on our view of the world.
But not: that the sensory impressions impose rational demands on our empirical thinking.
At most in a very complex way: they lead to the formation of opinions, but they do not specify what the subject should think.
(Terminology: Davidson does not speak even of phenomena).
McDowell I 181
Sensations/Davidson: seperate us ultimately from the world! (Third dogma: scheme).
