Claude Beauregard (c.1591-1664) was a French physician and philosopher. He was professor at Pisa from 1628 until 1640, and from there he moved to Padua. His 'Circulus Pisnniis', published in 1643, was considered an Atheistic work. In the form of a dialogue he exhibited the various hypotheses of the formation of the world. The work was forbidden and is very rare. He was later charged for scepticism following the release of his book entitled 'Dubitutiones'.
