In western philosophy, David Hume uses the word "impression" as he defines it in An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding For Hume, an "impression" corresponds roughly with what we call a sensation. To remember or to imagine such impressions is to have an "idea". Ideas are therefore the faint copies of impressions.
