Guillaume Lamy (1644–1683) was a French physician best known for his sympathies with Epicurean philosophy, and for his influence on materialists such as La Mettrie.

Lamy was doctor at the Medical Faculty of Paris and attracted both criticism and praise from fellow physicians for his attempts to take medicine in new directions based on Epicurean philosophy. In 1682 he published Traité de l'antimoine.
