Raimond Gaita (born 1946) is Foundation Professor of Philosophy at the Australian Catholic University and Professor of Moral Philosophy at King's College London. He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities.

Born in Germany in 1946 to a Romanian father (Romulus Gaita) and a German mother (Christine Anna Drr), he arrived in Australia in 1950 at the age of four. His childhood and the lives of his family members and close friends are heavily detailed in his award winning memoir Romulus, My Father, which was made into an award winning film starring Eric Bana (Romulus), Franka Potente (Christine), Kodi Smit-McPhee (Raimond) and Marton Csokas (Hora).

Gaita attended St. Patrick's College, Ballarat (Victoria) Melbourne High School (Victoria), University of Melbourne (BA Hons, MA) and University of Leeds (PhD). He is married to Yael Gaita, who is a teacher at The King David School, where she teaches Hebrew. He has two children, Katerina and Eva and two step children, Dahlia and Michelle.

Because he believes that it is generally a good thing for philosophers to address an educated and hard-thinking lay audience as well as their colleagues, Gaita has contributed extensively to public discussion about reconciliation, collective responsibility, the role of moral considerations in politics, genocide and the alleged uniqueness of the Holocaust, education (the nature of teaching as a vocation, the role of love in learning) and about the plight of the universities. Most recently he has been active in speaking and writing against people who advocate that in order to protect ourselves against terrorists we should legalise some forms of torture.
