IMO - one struggles to make a similar comparison though… imagine saying something like “american philosophy” … it’s kinda a silly combination of words… there is Chinese philosophy b/c Chinese culture is much older. Yes, there were thought leaders who may have attained the status of philosophers who were American… some of our founders, some of the important intellectuals that came to the US early in our founding….
American Culture is quite young… there is no equivalent philosophy… there are trends, movements, viewpoints, cultural touchpoints, schools of thought, tendencies, factions, parties, etc. But it is not very useful to attempt to compare (as apples to apples - me thinks) Chinese philosophy to something like American Philosophy… and comparing an adult (no matter what the quality, standing, moral adeptness, intelligence, etc of the adult) and their whole gestalt or life view or philosophy or moral outlook on life to the thoughts of a very precocious and capable child who may have very good ideas… but still does not have a life of experiences… comes to mind (and this does not take into consideration the particulars of either who is america vs. who is china in the comparison… it’s just similarly dissimilar)
There are definitely differences in Chinese culture and chinese attitudes, Chinese people vs same american things… but there is Chinese philosophy… there isn’t really American Philosophy (but all opinions expressed herein are worth the price paid).
