Research interests

Lee works on a range of issues in metaphysics, aesthetics, and the philosophy of logic and language. His current research is primarily focused on three areas: the metaphysics of art; fictional characters, empty names, and nonexistence; and the logic and semantics of conditionals. Lee also maintains an interest in epistemology, the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of Gottlob Frege.
