Arturo Andrés Roig (16 July[1] 1922 - 30 April 2012) was an Argentine philosopher.

Born in Mendoza, he entered the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo, and graduated in 1949 with a degree in Education Sciences (Profesor de Enseñanza Secundaria, Normal y Especial en Filosofía). Roig continued his studies at the Sorbonne.

He returned to Argentina, and in 1955 he began teaching philosophy at the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo, with a special interest in local philosophers. This interest subsequently expanded to national and Latin American philosophers. Roig also studied German philosopher Karl Christian Friedrich Krause, and authored his first book on the pantheist thinker's influence in Argentina.

He is famous for being one of the best developed examples of Latin American Philosophy, and for his vast amount of scientific works, for which he has received widespread recognition and awards.
