Lee Miller studied classics and medieval philosophy at St. Louis University before going on to doctoral studies in philosophy at Yale, where he wrote a dissertation on Plato's Protagoras. At Stony Brook he has taught graduate and undergraduate courses on Plato, Aristotle, medieval philosophy, and ethics. He is a recipient of the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Teaching. His scholarly research has focused on Nicholas of Cusa, a Christian Neoplatonist of the early Renaissance. He has published many articles and two translations, one of Nicholas' Idiote de Mente, a second of Jean Gerson's De Consolatione Theologiae. His monograph on Nicholas of Cusa, Reading Cusanus appeared in 2002 (Catholic University Press).
