This is the term in psychology that means the feeling of having previously experienced an event or place actually being encountered for the first time. It is the same as the French phrase déjà vu which can be translated as "seen before".

In parapsychology the same term is used similarly to precognition, which means knowing something and being able to describe it before you encounter it.
