Why hasn’t been there no great Anglo philosophers after him? What happened to Anglo s?

They all became economists, scientists, and colonizers

You obviously haven’t read Moore or Pierce

They are obviously good, but not on the level of all time greats like Hume. Germans consistently have produced them, while Anglos haven’t.

I’m going to have to agree with this. Even the way speak and conduct our early education has pretty much impeded our philosophizing in favor of science and technology.

>> No.15055585

Americans aren’t educated and never really have been. That leaves Brits, who after imitating the Americans have become too obsessed with science to have an education or language well-suited for philosophy.

Seriously, Pierce is superior. While Hume is both very clear and adamant in his questioning of dogmas that aren't immediately obvious, Pierce is willing to consider problems from so many angles, and rebuilt his attempts at systematism whenever there is something that he realists doesn't fit with what he's developed, while aming to encompass so many things. Hume just doesn't have quite the same ambition.

Bertrand Russell? AJ Ayer?

>> No.15057710

There's never been a great Anglo philosopher. Hume was Scottish and Berkeley was Irish. The English do many things well but philosophy is one thing that's truly beyond them.

>> No.15057723

Betrand Russell belongs in the fucking bin. The inventor of /r/atheism.

nah, the last german of note was Heidegger.

Whitehead is in the top 5 most important philosophers of the 20th century

Anon, how many great German philosophers have there been between Hume and Heidegger?

Use your head friend.

>> No.15057854

I don't know who Pierce is, but he made the mistake of considering the underlying quantifiable world as "the most truthful" which Heidegger might say is a development from the wrong presuppositions of Descartes and further the subject/object dichotomy.

Berkeley was Anglo-Irish, his ancestors were English.

>> No.15058053

"Anglos" from beyond the River Mercy are Welsh larping as Anglos. Lowland Scots are two Celts in a trenchcoat pretending to be Anglo.

>> No.15058066

Whitehead was retroactively refuted by Rene Guenon and Parmenides. It's a shame really, he simply couldn't contend with the Eleatic doctrine.

>> No.15058070

In other words he's about as English as the average Amerimutt.
