The Open Court Publishing Company is a publisher with offices in Chicago and La Salle, Illinois. It is part of the Carus Publishing Company of Peru, Illinois.

Founded in 1887 by Edward Hegeler of the Matthiessen-Hegeler Zinc Company, its first managing editor was Paul Carus, Hegeler's son-in-law.

Open Court specializes in philosophy, science, and religion, and was one of the first academic presses in the country. It was one of the first publishers of inexpensive editions of the classics. It also published the journals Open Court and The Monist—the latter is still being published as of 2010.
