Anioł Dowgird (1776–1835) was a philosopher of Polish Enlightenment.
Dowgird studied in Jesuit and Piarist schools, then joined the Piarist Order and took holy orders. Subsequently he taught at Piarist schools and for a time was a professor of logic and ethics at Wilno University.
Dowgird derived his views from John Locke's empiricism, the Scottish School of Common Sense, and Immanuel Kant's Critique of Pure Reason. But, unlike Kant, he ascribed to time and space a real existence independent of man.
