|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. |

Impression/Sensory Impression/Identity/Leibniz: therefore Leibniz does not rely on the "impression" (terminology: Locke: "sensation", Hume: "impression").
LeibnizVsLocke/LeibnizVsHume: in the sensible givenness itself lies the identity relation.
