Arvi Grotenfelt (1863-1941), was a Finnish philosopher and psychologist.

He was one of the founders of the Finnish Science Academy and the chairman of the Finnish Philosophical society 1905-36. He studied under Wilhelm Wundt and and wrote on the subject of the history of philosophy. In his mind historiography is always estimating, as when it comes to the selection of sources, and this can be connected to weltanschauung.

In his time Grotenfelt also was critical of the contemporary racism.
