Edgar Quinet (17 February 1803–27 March 1875) was a French historian and intellectual.

He translated Johann Gottfried Herder's Ideen zur Philosophie der Geschichte der Menschheit ("Outlines of Philosophy of the History of Man") learnt German for the purpose, and published his work in 1827, and obtained through it considerable credit.
