    Timothy Miller, PhD
    Associate Professor of Philosophy

    Miller joined Lee’s faculty in 2008. Prior to that, he was a visiting assistant professor of philosophy at Oklahoma Baptist University. He completed his PhD at the University of Oklahoma, specializing in metaphysics, philosophy of religion, and early modern philosophy. His dissertation focused on the traditional doctrine of continuous creation and the problems it raises concerning the nature of causation and persistence. It was awarded the University of Oklahoma’s 2007 dissertation prize for the Fine Arts and Humanities.

    His research interests include developing contemporary formulations of rule-consequentialism and philosophical problems that arise at the intersection of divine creation and the metaphysics of causation.

    He and Linda Zagzebski co-edited Readings in Philosophy of Religion: Ancient to Contemporary (Wiley-Blackwell, 2009). His other publications include: “Desgabets on Cartesian Minds” (British Journal for the History of Philosophy, 2008); “On the Distinction between Creation and Conservation: A Partial Defense of Continuous Creation” (Religious Studies, 2009); “Continuous Creation and Secondary Causation: The Threat of Occasionalism (Religious Studies, 2011); and “Solving Rule Consequentialism’s Acceptance Rate Problem” (Utilitas, 2016).

    Miller and his wife, Beth, have two boys, Bao and Shaw. In his spare time, he enjoys riding his motorcycle, cooking, and playing tennis.
