Learn about Mysterium Magnum Part 1 :
The main purpose of this edition is to provide a searchable text for the researcher and student of Boehme and enable search engines to index Boehme’s writings, in order to make his texts easily retrievable.
It is a complete text, including the preface of John Sparrow, Jacob Boehme’s preface and an extensive alphabetical index of names and places dealt with in this book. The spelling of conjugated verbs has been modernized for easier reading. Italics are from Sparrow’s hand.
Boehme’s work deserves to be available freely, after about four hundred years. It is still relevant today, because it is process oriented and process philosophy (Whitehead, Peirce, etc.) is getting more attention now, promising some solutions to philosophical problems, like ontological ones, that have plagued science for a long time since quantum mechanics started to be developed. Psychologists can also benefit greatly from the insights into human nature that Boehme offers to the careful reader.
