Anthony Collins was born in Heston, near Hounslow in Middlesex, England. He was an English philosopher, and a proponent of deism. He was educated at Eton College and King's College, Cambridge, and studied law at the Middle Temple.

In 1715 he settled in Essex, where he held the offices of justice of the peace and deputy-lieutenant, which he had previously held in Middlesex. In 1724 Collins published his Discourse of the Grounds and Reasons of the Christian Religion, with An Apology for Free Debate and Liberty of Writing prefixed. In philosophy, Collins takes a foremost place as a defender of Necessitarianism.
