Frank Furedi (born 1947, in Budapest, Hungary) is professor of sociology at the University of Kent, UK. He is well known for his work on sociology of fear, therapy culture, paranoid parenting and sociology of knowledge.

A former student radical, he became involved in left wing politics in the 1970s and emerged as founder and chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party. In the 1990s he was actively involved in humanist focused issues, especially campaigns for free speech.

Furedi is author of several books on risk, most recently Wasted: Why Education is not Educating (Continuum 2009) and Invitation to Terror: The Expanding Empire of the Unknown (Continuum 2007), an analysis of the impact of terrorism post 9/11. He is, according to research, the most widely cited sociologist in the UK press.

He is the husband of Ann Furedi, the Chief Executive of British Pregnancy Advisory Service, the UK's largest independent abortion provider.
