I am currently at work on two book-length projects. One is
tentatively titled, Spinoza and the Problem of History, and the other is tentatively titled Conceptual Nomadism: an Intellectual History of Philosophy since Kant. In the first book, I offer a reading of Spinoza that argues that Spinoza's corpus is best understood in terms of the conceptual resources Spinoza developed as he simultaneously addressed issues in the history of philosophy in his work on Descartes and the attendant problem of history that accompanies such a task. This reading allows us both to understand and supplement Deleuze's Gueroult-inspired reading of Spinoza and it more generally makes a case for the importance of the history of philosophy to doing philosophy. The second book is in many ways a companion piece to the first in that it is a history of philosophy that sets forth a philosophy of concepts, and in the end will show what it means for philosophy to be the intellectual labor of creating concepts.
