Pragmatism and analytic philosophy are uniquely American movements because they are way different in theory to the European pragmatism and analytic philosophy, known as continental philosophy. Bruder and Moore (2002) stated that pragmatism is an American theoretical movement that was made up in the 1870s by C. S. Peirce. Pragmatists refused to believe the idea that that there is such a thing as an independent and unmodifiable truth. Pragmatists believe that truth is associated with a time, place, and purpose and so is always changing in the form of new data. Bruder and Moore (2002) stated that to C. S.
Peirce pragmatism was a rule for figuring out the meaning of ideas. Analytical philosophy is being able to think sensibly and come to a rational conclusion based on facts rather that emotion, communication assessment, and scientific methods in approaching ideas. American pragmatism and analytical philosophy are well balanced on a scientific approach to argument and analysis. European philosophies on the above stated matter were different even though American and European philosophies took place around the same time period. European pragmatism and analytical philosophy as stated above is known as ontinental philosophy.
Continental philosophy does not accept scientific methods, instead European philosophers view thought in the form if such things as space, time, history, culture, and language. Continental philosophers also find value on theory as well as practice. They view their philosophy based on political, individual, and moral changes. So, continental philosophy generally likes to place the importance of past views on philosophical argument, sticking to the theory that philosophical thought must be seen within its historical and cultural context, and uses both theory and practice in its views.

The United States versus the Soviet Union
Hey Ivie, I have read your post and delighted in the arrangement of your points. You seem to have deeper details on the subject and place you at a better position to explain your thoughts. The United States before this spaceship was launched and successfully sent a signal back to the ground station went in a state of panic and disbelief. Her military prowess brought pride (Kaiser & David, 2017). The Soviet Union had broken that though and challenged her arch rival. It was now a battle of the fittest as the two sides sought technological and military superiority.
However, this challenge compelled the United States to come up with better projects including lunar exploration. Like you put it, many people were interested in the new venture leading to overwhelming support for the lunar project that saw the eventual landing of Apollo on the surface of the moon. This is proof that you did some background research to come up with such factual information. Keep it up.
