The difference between impressions and ideas.

A Scotish philosopher David Hume showed the distinction between impressions and ideas by means of that impressions are stronger that ideas or thoughts also Hume showed that there is a considerable difference between perceptions of the mind. Hume's example-when a man feels the pain of excessive heat or the pleasure of moderate warmth. Hume showed that ideas they are just a work of your mind and ideas are making by impressions.
Therefore, impressions have more force, feelings and vivacity than ideas, many people have the same ideas, but different impressions.
