Karl Abraham (3 May, 1877 - 25 December, 1925) was an early German psychoanalyst, and a correspondent of Sigmund Freud, who called him his 'best pupil'.

Karl Abraham collaborated with Freud on the understanding of manic-depressive illness, leading to Freud's paper on Mourning and Melancholia in 1917. He was the analyst of Theodor Reik, and of a number of other psychoanalysts.
