Robert Linssen (11 April 1911 – 15 May 2004) was a Belgian Zen Buddhist and author. Linssen wrote in French, but many of his texts have been translated into other languages including English. Like other Western authorities on the subject of Zen Buddhism (such as the author Alan Watts), Linssen's ideas about Buddhism in general and Zen Buddhism in particular have been influential both to practitioners of Zen and to academics.
