Sir Geoffrey James Warnock (1923–1995) was a philosopher and Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University. Before his knighthood (in the 1986 New Year's Honours List) he was commonly known as G. J. Warnock.

He was educated at Winchester College and New College Oxford. Warnock served with the Irish Guards until 1945. He then entered New College with a classical scholarship. At Magdelen College, Oxford, he was elected to a Fellowship in 1949. After spending three years at Brasenose, he returned to Oxford as a Fellow and tutor in philosophy. In 1970 was elected to Principal of Hertford College, Oxford, where there is now a society and student house named after him. He was also the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford from 1981 to 1985.

Warnock married Mary Warnock, philosophy fellow of St Hugh's College, Oxford and later Baroness Warnock, in 1949. They had two sons and three daughters. He retired to live near Marlborough in 1988 and died in 1995.
