Benjamin Apthorp Gould Fuller (March 9, 1879, Brookline, MA–1956) was a philosopher, and author of A History of Philosophy.

Benjamin Apthorp Gould Fuller was the son of Horace Williams Fuller and Emily Gorham Carter. He prepped at Roxbury Latin School in Roxbury, Massachusetts, and received his B.A., A.M., and Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1900, 1902, and 1906, respectively. His Ph.D. thesis on "The Problem of Evil in Plotinus" was published in 1912. In 1902 he matriculated at Christ Church, Oxford, and received his B.Sc. in 1905.

Fuller taught philosophy at Harvard from 1906 to 1910. In 1910 he traveled around the world, visiting Kashmire, northern and central India, Assam, Burma, Java, and Japan, developing "the habit of never taking a ticket further than the next stop, and came to the realization that life is much too short to hurry."

In 1923 Henry Holt & Co. published his History of Greek Philosophy, Thales to Democritus.

In 1924 he began teaching at the Graduate School of the University of Cincinnati.

Fuller was a president of the American Philosophical Association.

    The power of a text is different when it is read from when it is copied out.... Only the copied text thus commands the soul of him who is occupied with it, whereas the mere reader never discovers the new aspects of his inner self that are opened by the text, that road cut through the interior jungle forever closing behind it: because the reader follows the movement of his mind in the free flight of day-dreaming, whereas the copier submits it to command.
    —Walter Benjamin (1892–1940)
