/ Biography of American philosophy
American philosophy is the activity, discourse, and tradition of philosophers who are either from the United States or who have spent a significant portion of their careers in the United States.
American philosophy can be divided into three periods: the colonial era, the early national period, and the post-Civil War era. The colonial era is marked by the work of thinkers such as Jonathan Edwards and Benjamin Franklin. The early national period is dominated by figures such as Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. After the Civil War, American philosophy was dominated by figures such as Charles Sanders Peirce, William James, and John Dewey.
In the 20th century, American philosophy was divided into two main camps: the analytic tradition, represented by thinkers such as Bertrand Russell and W. V. Quine; and the continental tradition, represented by thinkers such as Martin Heidegger and Jean-Paul Sartre. In the 21st century, American philosophy is once again divided, with a renewed focus on the analytic tradition, represented by thinkers such as Saul Kripke and Hilary Putnam, and the continental tradition, represented by thinkers such as Judith Butler and Slavoj Žižek..
