Peter Poellner is a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Warwick. He is considered by many to be Britain's foremost expert on the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. His more general research interests are related most strongly to 19th- and 20th-century European Continental Philosophy (especially phenomenologists such as Edmund Husserl, Max Scheler, Jean-Paul Sartre and the early Martin Heidegger).
According to Brian Leiter, he has challenged the view that libertarian views of free will and moral responsibility are central to Western religious, moral, and cultural traditions.
