Georg Friedrich Meier (26 March 1718, Saxony-Anhalt – 21 June 1777, Giebichenstein) was a German philosopher and aesthetician. A follower of Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten, Meier reformed the philosophy of Christian Wolff by introducing elements of John Locke's empiricist theory of knowledge.
Meier studied philosophy and theology at the University of Halle, where he was a pupil of Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten. Meier succeeded Baumgarten as extraordinary professor, and became a full professor at Halle in 1748.
