Martin Schoock (Latin: Schoockius) (April 1, 1614 – d. 1669), Dutch philosopher. He was born in Utrecht in 1614.

He is famous for his two works, one against the renewed skepticism of François de La Mothe Le Vayer and the other against Descartes at the encouragement of his teacher Johannes Voet. In this second one, he accuses Descartes of spreading skepticism, atheism, and bigotry to their extreme limits and makes violent attacks.
