Description This year it is 130 years since the birth and 80 years since the death of Karel Vorovka (from 3/2/1879 till 15/1/1929) as well as 80 years since the publication of his American Philosophy. The author shows the way that led Vorovka to this work: his strong orientation to western thinking, his attendance at the 6th international philosophical congress taking place at Harvard University in Cambridge near Boston (from 13/9/ till 17/9/1926) and his personal and professional relationships with Anglo-American philosophers. It presents Vorovkas trip reports from American meetings and the results of his studies: reviews of some Harvard philosophers works (R. B. Perry, W. A. Hocking, C. I. Lewis) and journal articles on American neo-realism, personalism and behaviorism, which were eventually included in his American Philosophy.
