André of Neufchâteau[1] (died c. 1400) was a scholastic philosopher of the fourteenth century. He was a Franciscan from Lorraine, who wrote a number of works.[2] He earned the name Doctor Ingeniosissimus (most ingenious Doctor).[3]

In philosophy he opposed Nicholas of Autrecourt,[4] and also the nominalist Augustinian Gregory of Rimini.[5] On the dependence of natural law on divine will he followed Pierre d'Ailly.[6]

His Sentences commentary was printed in Paris in 1514.[7]
