David Herbert Fowler (28 April 1937 - 13 April 2004) was a historian of Greek mathematics who published work on pre-Eudoxian ratio theory (using the process he called anthyphairesis). He disputed the standard story of Greek mathematical discovery, in which the discovery of the phenomenon of incommensurability came as a shock.

Fowler was also the translator of René Thom's book Structural Stability and Morphogenesis from French (Stabilité strukturelle et morphogénèse) into English.
