Definition sensory impression/McDowell: The impact of the world on our senses. (s) So the world's achievement, not the subject's achievement. Not the impression we have, but the impression made by the world.
According to Sellars/Davidson: non-conceptual.

Sensory impressions/DavidsonVsMcDowell: 1. There are no facts at all.
2. Causality: only conclusions from knowledge about causal connections - causality itself does not reveal the world.
Sensory Impressions/McDowell: are transparent according to me, Sellars and Davidson do not see it like this.
Sensory Impressions/McDowell: Thesis: a harmless concept of this could be: we can assume that spontaneity is rationally controlled by the receptivity without the receptivity blocking our access. For this we must reject only the dualism of reason and nature.
