Hermann Friedrich Wilhelm Hinrichs (22 April 1794, Karlseck, Hohenkirchen, now Wangerland, Friesland – 17 September 1861, Friedrichroda) was a German philosopher.
He studied theology at Strassburg, and philosophy at Heidelberg under Hegel, who wrote a preface to his Religion im innern Verhältniss zur Wissenschaft (Heidelberg, 1822).
He became a Privatdozent in 1819, and held professorships at Breslau (1822) and Halle (1824).
