Colin Henry Wilson (Leicester, 26 juny de 1931 – Cornualla, 5 de desembre del 2013) va ser un filòsof i escriptor britànic. Els principals temes de la seva obra són la criminalitat i el misticisme. Colin Wilson es va convertir en un dels Joves Iracunds de la literatura britànica. Va contribuir a Declaration, una antologia de manifestos escrits per escriptors existencialistes, amb Protest: The Beat Generation and the Angry Young Men. Wilson i els seus amics Bill Hopkins i Stuart Holroyd, van ser un subgrup més interessats en els "valors religiosos" que en la política liberal o socialista. Els crítics de l'esquerra aviat els van considerar feixistes; el comentarista Kenneth Allsop els anomenà "els jutges".
