I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Durham University. Before this, I worked at Trinity College Dublin, and the University of Nottingham.

My research is primarily on topics in metaphysics and formal ontology, the philosophy of language and linguistics, and metaphilosophy. I have also written a number of pieces outlining and examining the philosophy of one of my PhD supervisors, EJ Lowe.

At the moment I spend a lot of my time thinking about what it means to say that metaphysical theories are 'equally good', and on how to account for linguistic entities within our wider metaphysical theories.

I have taught in the above areas, as well as philosophy of science, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, early modern philosophy (esp. Descartes, Berkeley, Hume, and Kant), the history of analytic philosophy (esp. Wittgenstein, Quine, James, and Carnap), (formal and informal) logic, epistemology, ethics, meta-ethics, communicating philosophy, and philosophy of religion.

A list of my current publications can be found here. Pre-proof versions of most items can be found through my PhilPeople profile. If there is anything that you would like to see a copy of but cannot get access to, please e-mail me and I'll be happy to send a version.

My partner, Anna Bortolan, is also a philosopher. Information on her work can be found here.

To avoid confusions with the many other James Millers, I publish my work using my initials as 'JTM Miller'.
