"Recept" (pronounced //) is a term used in the work of 19th-century psychologist George Romanes to refer to an idea that is formed by the repetition of percepts (i.e., successive percepts of the same object). The idea is similar to that of concatenated impressions, as seen in the work of David Hume.
- Webster's New International Dictionary. Springfield, Massachusetts: G. & C. Merriam. 1913. p. 1781. "A mental image or idea formed by successive percepts of the same or like objects, and thus accentuating their common characters; a generic image."
