Gonzalo Rodriguez-Pereyra (born 7 August 1969) is a philosopher. He is currently a lecturer at the University of Oxford, where he has the title of Professor of Metaphysics, and a Tutorial Fellow at Oriel College.
Rodriguez-Pereyra has previously been a Research Fellow at Churchill College, University of Cambridge, Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh, Lecturer at the University of Oxford and Tutorial Fellow at Hertford College, and Professor at the University of Nottingham and Universidad Torcuato Di Tella.
His interests are primarily in Metaphysics and the philosophy of Leibniz. His work on resemblance nominalism provides a response to that of David Malet Armstrong and grounds resemblance relations in the sort of modal realism expressed in On the Plurality of Worlds by David Lewis.
