That statement seems to hold prejudice... in America it is not widely know that the first book was called "The Philosopher's Stone". Also there is a culture difference between the U.S. and the U.K. The word philosopher is interpreted differently in our different cultures. The word in the U.S. is interpreted as a thinker and that only, while in the U.K. it can be interpreted also as an alchemist. So it isn't simply because "americans are stupid" (only some of us are).

I'm American and I agree it's totally prejudiced, but sadly that is why they changed the title. They thought people who weren't British wouldn't know what philosopher meant so they changed the title.

Hmm, I've lived in the UK for pretty much all my life and I've never heard an alchemist referred to as a philosopher before.

Wow. I really just LOVE it when people call all American's stupid. Yeah, some of us are, so that apparently makes us all the same? The books are the SAME THING. The only difference between them is the words "Philosopher's" and "Sorcerer's". Everything else is the same. They both give off the same message, the same professors, the same classes. So really, there is no difference. I know the title shouldn't have been changed, I honestly think that the original title is classier. And guess what, I LIVE IN AMERICA. So please, before you go blabbing your mouth calling another country stupid, think about it and all the people who can see this.

Also, apparently WB only made the 7th and 8th? I don't really know but that's what it said on Wikipedia, which is God. :L Anyway, even if they were produced in America, I'm pretty sure they would have originally used 'philosopher' as that is the original word and the U.S. is the only country that has it changed to 'sorcerer' (to my knowledge...).

I use brilliant because I happen to like that word. I didn't know only British people were allowed to?
If you're talking about the "Team Harmione" thing, it's for Harry and Hermione shipping.
I've read the series seven times, seen the movies many more than that, own wands, the Marauder's Map, a Time-Turner, Fantastic Beasts, Quidditch Through the Ages, Tales of Beedle the Bard, Converse that say Expelliarmus on them, a HP calendar, ten shirts, and I can tell you pretty much anything you want to know about the world Rowling created. I can assure that I am not a poser, I'd have detention with Umbridge before I'd ever lie about something so dear to me as Harry Potter.
And I call it Philosopher's Stone because I know it was the original title, not because it's "British." That's stupid.

I know this sounds so unbelievable, but I'm just catching up on the Harry Potter series. xP They never appealed to me as a child, but now I'm beginning to delve into the magic of it all despite my age. Ohoho, it just shows how enchanting these books are. By the way, I'm on the third book. I know: total HP noob.

For anybody who was wondering, yes, the first book is Philosopher's Stone in England and Sorcerer's Stone in America because J.K. Rowling's American publishers thought that children wouldn't want to read a book with philosopher's in the title, and asked her to change it into something more exciting or magical. (Later she said she regretted the change). It has nothing to do with intelligence.
Oh, and in the movie every time philosopher's stone/sorcerer's stone was mentioned they filmed it twice, one for the American version of the movie and one for the English movie.

Before there are any more arrogant people commenting, read the comments already posted before you say "*sorcerers*". It's not that hard of a concept to grasp... In America it is Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. The way it is in most countires and the way JK Rowling wrote it was as Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone.

No, we know that a philosopher is a boring person who typically thinks through... Well everything.

We don't have the connotation like in Britain of the alchemist, or whatever. I wouldn't have read that book, for, to me, a stone of a smart guy really isn't that interesting.

To be perfectly honest, we don't have the alchemist connotation either really. The whole thing is pretty much an old legend (I think). You just sound like a douche.

I'm american, I know that it is Philosopher's stone originally, and I'm sick of the American stereotypes that we don't like thinking, even if it may be true for some people.

Well then that's judging a book by it's cover. The fact is that hp is so amazing and has made billions so clearly jk did well, so why try to change it? Why were none of the other titles changed? Hp and the chamber of the basilisk?

Also, the american versions actually have changed words IN the books! For example, book 5 at st mungos where in the original book a person has a satsuma stuck up their nose, in the american version it's a nut. Which i personally feel is nowhere as funny as it's way easier to get up one's nose. Do american's not know what a satsuma is? It's just stupid to change pure awesomeness you know? It's british, so leave it british.

I'm American and I've never heard of a satsuma until this comment. Ever. I looked it up and it looks like it's just a tangerine or a clementine- that's what they're called in America. We don't use the word satsuma; I even asked my mom what it was and she had no clue. You can think we're all idiots if you like, but I'm sure there's many words that Americans use often and British people have never heard of.
Maybe the American versions shouldn't have been changed (though I don't think they were changed much at all), but it certainly makes it tons easier for little kids to read them in America.

@master_chief, thank you! The philosopher's stone does not originate in hp, it's what alchemists used to try to make. Therefore it makes zero sense to call it sorceror's stone when the philosopher's stone is a long-standing legend around which parts of the book was based!

We actually do use the word satsuma in America. You're right, it's basically interchangable for tangerine. But in the south, at least, we use satsuma as well.

I don't think YOU'RE stupid, i think the person in america who changed it is stupid...if it's interchangeable with tangerine then change it for that. It's just lame that some of the words that are changed take away the hilarity of some of the situations

Wait a minute they got the wrong person
Voldemort was framed
in book one voldemort ate a unicorn
you are what you eat
so technically voldemort is a unicorn
and since unicorns are pure and innocent
Voldemort is pure and innocent
All the evidence of the murders lead to Voldemort
but since he is pure and innocent, Voldemort was framed.

In my opinion as a bit they changed it for this reason.
Americans aren't stupid but they do seem to want to know the reasons for things

An american sees the term Philosiphors stone and craves to know why its called that. Why. There has to be a reason.

However a Brit sees this and is content to think that its called a Philosiphers stone because its called a philosophers stone. There doesn't have to be a reason why its just a name.

So Sorcerers gives a much more logical idea up front of why it would be called that.
In some ways your crave for reasons makes you better and worse. I am not here to judge
