Areas of Specialization

Ancient and medieval philosophy, Nicholas of Cusa, ethics


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).
