Patrick Lee Miller is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Duquesne University, USA. His previous publications include Introductory Readings in Ancient Greek and Roman Philosophy (Hackett, 2006).
"Miller provides an interesting study of the possibility of human transcendence through rationality in the early Greek tradition. He plans to pursue this topic into later Greek philosophy where it becomes even more prominent, and his study already points the way to Aristotle's life of reason. We may look forward for the sequel to carry on his study. (Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)"
