Robert Knox MD FRCSEd FRSEd (4 September 1791 – 20 December 1862) was a Scottish surgeon, anatomist and zoologist. He was the most popular lecturer in anatomy in Edinburgh before his involvement in the Burke and Hare body-snatching case. This ruined his career, and a later move to London did not improve matters. His later pessimistic view of humanity contrasted with his youthful attachment to the ideas of Geoffroy.

Knox's ideas on anthropology are now considered racist. This has harmed his reputation, though he continued to reject natural theology, and believed that there was a blood relationship between all living things.
