Andrus Park (kuni 1991 Andrus Pork; 17. detsember 194914. august 1994) oli eesti filosoof ja politoloog.

Ta lõpetas Tartu Riikliku Ülikooli 1973. aastal ajaloo ja filosoofia erialal. Kaitses 1973. aastal filosoofiakandidaadi ja 1984. aastal -doktori kraadi Vilniuses uurimuse eest, mis käsitles ajaloolist seletust.

Ta oli esimene Eesti sotsiaalteadlane, kes hakkas järjekindlalt avaldama oma töid rahvusvahelistes teadusajakirjades (esmalt ajaloofilosoofia teemadel ja hiljem politoloogia alal). Ta arendas välja rahvusvahelise tunnustuse pälvinud relativistlik-kausaalse seletuse kontseptsiooni ajaloofilosoofias.

Ernst Gellner [1] kirjutas tema kohta: “It is of course impossible to comment on the essay by (…) Andrus Park without speaking of his extremely tragic and terribly premature death. Andrus was a young man, whose combination of intellectual ability and integrity with great personal charm destined him to play a major part both in the life of Estonia and in the international world of thought and letters. His quiet charm and intellectual warmth has gained him many friends in London and Washington as well as in Tallinn and Tartu and Moscow. It is sad to have to say goodbye to him” [Gellner, E. (1994). Reply to critics. In J. A. Hall & I. Jarvie (Eds.), The Social Philosophy of Ernest Gellner (pp. 623-686). Amsterdam: Rodopi B.V.].
