"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 valuable intro by the Rev. G. W. Allen, all footnotes and nontrivial marginal notes. An extensive alphabetical list of terms with chapterverse indication follows at the end of the book. This will be consulted frequently by the serious student and researcher alike" .- - -Martin Euser

The High and Deep Searching Outof 
The Threefold Life of Man
through or according to
The Three Principles
 
 Jacob Boehme - Teutonicus Philosophus
Translated by John Sparrow 1909
 
A SHORT CONTENTS OF THIS BOOKBy the Author
Being a high and deep searching out of the Three-fold Life of Man, through the Three Principles.Wherein is clearly shewn that which is eternal;and also that which is mortal. And wherefore God, who is the highest Good,hath brought all things to light. Also wherefore one thing is contrary to another,and destroyeth it: and then what is right or true,and what is evil or false, and how the one severeth(distinguishes) itself from the other.Wherein especially the Three Principles arefounded, which are the only original or fountainwhence all things flow and are generated.Whereby the multitude of meanings and opinionsabout faith and religion may be known: and whatis the cause of the multitudes of opinions amongmen concerning the essence and will of God; alsowhat is best for man to do, that he may attain thehighest and eternal good. And then concerning the end and issue of allthings; wherefore all things have appeared in sucha property and essence as they have had; for thecomfort of the poor wounded sick soul of man, andfor the rebuilding or edification of the true Christian
 
religion; wherein the Antichrist standeth quitenaked and revealed.Set down for a remembrance to ourself, and fora stay to uphold us in these distracted miserabletimes.
Introduction to the electronic text edition (2009)
It is with great pleasure that I offer this electronic edition of JacobBoehme's work on the Threefold Life of Man.It was his third book, after "Aurora" and "The Three Principlesof the Divine Essence", and it is arguably one of his most important books,containing the bulk of his ideas.The main purpose of this edition is to provide a searchable text for theresearcher and student of Boehme and enable search-engines to indexBoehme's writings, in order to make his texts easily retrievable.It is a complete text, including the valuable intro by the Rev. G. W. Allen,all footnotes and non-trivial marginal notes. An extensive alphabetical listof terms with chapter-verse indication follows at the end of the book. Thiswill be consulted frequently by the serious student and researcher alike.The appendix contains a list of Boehme's publications. This was copied byme from the electronic text of Four Tables of Divine Revelation. Theappendix containing information about Freher's manuscripts was deemednon-relevant to this electronic edition and has been dropped.Boehme's work deserves to be available freely, after about four hundredyears. It is still relevant today, because it is process oriented and processphilosophy (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.Lastly, I wish you an inspirative study of this great work.
