I apologize for this. I just didn't know where to put it since we don't have an HP general thread. Well I was looking at youtube vids about HP and twice I see "ITS PHILOSOPHER'S STONE NOT SORCERER'S STONE!"

Well, there's two reasons:

1) In Britain and several other countries, the book was released as "Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone".

2) People on Youtube complain about everything. Pay it no mind. Razz

Yeah I know that in UK and other places called it by the alchemy title . But all true HP fan knows the reason why U.S. change it to "sorcerer's" instead.

I'm also aware of number 2.

I don't know why they're complaining either...they are the same dang book. Want to complain about something (not you, anne), try complaining about something worth complaining about...like Stephanie Meyer's train-wreck of a "love" story/writing. Spew Razz

I know you mean not me. That's my feeling exactly. So what if a couple of words got changed (like sweater instead of "jumper" and mom instead of mum/mam )big deal!!

I guess the people who complained did not know that it was released under two different titles - I didn't know it either, btw - and raged simply because they thought this title was wrong.

Jeeze. I saw people complaining about the homepage of ProjectRed being in polish Rolling Eyes

Actually, I disagree.

Saying "all true HP fans know the reason why ..." is a bit arrogant. I understand why it's called the Philosopher's Stone, but I don't understand the need to change it to Sorcerer's Stone for America. Is it offensive? WOW I mean, The Philosopher's Stone is a real myth.... JK Rowling didn't make it up: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosopher%27s_stone - so then why would it be called the Sorcerer's Stone? If the Sorcerer's Stone is actually The Philosopher's Stone? Speechless IDK, doesn't make sense to me. Dunno

Or maybe I'm not a real HP Fan Fighting

sorry didn't mean to offend you Conor. The reason they changed it were either 1) the world "Philosopher" wasn't magical enough or 2) the U.S. didn't think children would understand what a Philosopher was.

They changed it to Sorcerer's Stone because they didn't think children would want to read a book with the word "Philosopher"
in the title. Way to dumb down the American children, book publishers! Rolling Eyes

Anne--I've never heard that they changed the word because it wasn't magical enough. scratch that's a new one for me...

Personally, I don't think they should have changed anything with the original book. I was reading the other day that they changed the word "Leaned" to "Leant" in the American version...did they really think we wouldn't have understood what "leaned" meant had it been left as it was? Suspect
