Colin McGinn (fæddur 10. mars 1950 í West Hartlepool á Englandi) er breskur heimspekingur og prófessor í University of Miami, Florida, USA.[1]. Hann er einkum þekktur fyrir það viðhorf í hugspeki sem nefnt hefur verið „nýdulhyggja“ en samkvæmt henni er mannshugurinn í grundvallaratriðum ófær um að skilja sjálfan sig. Þannig skýrir McGinn þá staðreynd að mönnum hefur reynst svo erfitt að skilja eigin meðvitund.

McGinn er einnig skáldsagnahöfundur.
