Henrik Lagerlund was previously Professor of Philosophy and Head of the Philosophy Department at the University of Western Ontario in Canada. He works on the history of philosophy; primarily on Medieval and Renaissance philosophy, but he has also written on Aristotle and Leibniz. He is at the moment writing a history of skepticism for Routledge. Another interest is the philosophy of food (see Philosophy in the Contemporary World: The Philosophy of Food).
