The paper shows that Bohr's philosophical views were formed by the Danish existentialism and the American pragmatism. These currents had impact on Bohr's interpretation of quantum mechanics. There is, for example, a similarity between Kierkegaard's philosophical theory of jumps and Bohr's conception of the existence of unforeseeable and completely discontinuous quantum change of energy level in atoms. In Bohr's new philosophical ideas also impact of W. James' views may be traced. Under that influence, there originated such Bohr's ideas as thesis on the arbitrariness of border between observer and the object observed or the idea of uncontrollable interaction between both of them
