"Recept" (pronounced ) is a term used in the work of 19th-century percepts (i.e., successive percepts of the same object).[1] The idea is similar to that of concatenated impressions, as seen in the work of David Hume.

The term is used in Richard Maurice Bucke's book, Cosmic Consciousness: A Study in the Evolution of the Human Mind. Bucke was a 19th-century Canadian psychiatrist.
