A Short History of Philosophy





Notion. When he uses the words notio and notiones in philosophical discussion, Cicero tells us that he does so as the Latin equivalent for the Greek ἔννοῑα and πρόληψις, the latter of course not in the sense of anticipation. We may consider notion therefore as nearly synonymous with the result of conception. A notion is a concept. The word, however, is often used in a somewhat vague range of meaning.


In conversation it is often synonymous with opinion. "He has many strange notions." This is quite outside any philosophical use. Like idea too, it is often still further diverted from its true meaning by being employed for liking, chiefly, however, in negative declarations. "I have no notion of waiting for him a whole afternoon."
