Georg Mehlis (1878-1942) was a German neo-Kantian philosopher. Initially he was a philosopher of history in the style of Heinrich Rickert.

He edited (with Richard Kroner) Logos, Internationale Zeitschrift für Philosophie der Kultur, from 1910 (Logos was the title from 1912), with contributions by many leading German intellectual figures; which had an Italian stable-mate from 1914.

He turned in the 1920s to an interest in mysticism; and then wrote books on fascism. His ideas on aesthetics have been taken up by Suzanne Langer.
