The Particularity of American Philosophy and its Modern Transformation
Liu Fangtong(Department of Philosophy, Fudan University, Shanghai 200433, China)
As a late-coming capitalist country, the political and ideological cultures of America have late coming features. Modern American philosophies were imported from Europe, but were reconstructed adaptable to American special condition. What they really concerned is to solve the problems in the real life and practice rather than to construct strict and integrated theoretical system. Compare to European, Modern American philosophy is slightly inferior by theoretical deepness, but has better function in promotion of the development of real life.
