Alan Code (born 1951) is Ward W. and Priscilla B. Woods Professor of Philosophy and Professor of Classics (by courtesy) at Stanford University, and also Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at UC Berkeley. He is a respected scholar of ancient Greek philosophy, who has written a handful of important articles on Aristotle's metaphysics, science, and logic. He was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2013.
Code did his BA, MA, and PhD at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, writing his dissertation under Terry Penner. Before taking up a position at Stanford in 2011, he was Board of Governors Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University. Prior to that, he taught for many years at Berkeley, and also at the University of Michigan and Ohio State University.
Some of Code's papers are considered centrally important to the understanding of Aristotle's metaphysics  and philosophy of science. He has commented on, clarified and extended the work of such eminent scholars as G. E. L. Owen and Montgomery Furth.
