  "Within, Not Without: Jakob Boehme" by Grace F. Knoche
Jakob Boehme was a simple man, unschooled in high philosophy or the intricacies of theology, a devout Lutheran whose main source of inspiration had been derived from faithful church attendance and the reading of the New Testament.
Thus was Boehme introduced to the secret network of individuals and groups scattered all over Europe and in Great Britain, who were united by their common bond of dedication to a "traditional wisdom" that traced its ancestry not merely to the theosophic school of Alexandria, but far back into the mists of prehistory.
Boehme was the ultimate victor, for he soon entered into a fruitful correspondence with his new-found friends in different parts, and often visited them at their invitation in order to exchange views on the alchemical, qabbalistic and rosicrucian themes that were their mutual concern.

 Jakob Boehme
Jakob Boehme (1575-1624) was a German religious mystic from the town of Goerlitz in Silesia, eastern Germany.
Boehme's bold speculations about development within the Godhead, as well as his rejection of narrow dogmatism and bibliolatry, were to exercise a profound influence on contemporary Protestantism, both in Germany and elsewhere.
Boehme's thesis that God's coming to self-consciousness was a genetic process led to a new model for revelation, one involving the mediation of successive creations through pre-mundane as well as worldly time.

 JAKOB BOEHME - Title   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
BOEHME, Jakob (1576-1624), a mystical writer, whose surname (of which Fechner gives eight German varieties) appears in English literature as Beem, Behmont, andc., and notably in the form Behmen, was born at AltSeidenberg, in Upper Lusatia, a straggling hamlet among the hills, some ten miles S.E. of Gorlitz.
Boehme is always greatest when he breaks away from his fancies and his trammels, and allows speech to the voice of his heart.
Translating Boehme's thought out of the uncouth dialect of material symbols (as to which one doubts sometimes whether he means them as concrete instances, or as pictorial illustrations, or as a mere memoria technica) we find that Boehme conceives of the correlation of two triads of forces.

 Hegel's History of Philosophy
But Boehme has to attribute the high honour to which he was raised mainly to the garb of sensuous feeling and perception which he adopted; for ordinary sensuous perception and inward feeling, praying and yearning, and the pictorial element in thought, allegories and such like, are in some measure held to be essential in Philosophy.
Boehme's general conceptions thus on the one hand reveal themselves as both deep and sound, but on the other, with all his need for and struggle after determination and distinction in the development of his divine intuitions of the universe, he does not attain either to clearness or order.
Boehme grasps the opposites in the crudest, harshest way, but he does not allow himself through their unworkableness to be prevented from asserting the unity.

 Jakob Böhme (1575-1624)
Jacob Boehme was a 17th century shoemaker whose radical and mystical theology is consistent with modern knowledge of the relationship of the physical world to nonlocal reality, and of the dynamics of the psyche.
Boehme's expression of his ideas is often deeply couched in the obscure theological and alchemical languages of his time.
Boehme writes, "[To the detractor who says that I was not there] I say, that I, in the essence of my soul and body, when I was not yet I, but when I was in Adam's essence, was there, and did fool away my glory in Adam.

 Buber: Concerning Jacob Boehme
Boehme's basic concern, that which is the summation of his thought, is the problem of the relation of the individual to the world.
However today we are closer to Boehme than we are to the teachings of Feuerbach, the ideas of St. Francis of Assisi, who called the trees, birds, and stars his brothers and sisters, and nearer yet to the Vedanta.
For Boehme struggle and love reconciliations and the conquering of schisms are bridges between the I and the world; struggle, because in it and through it, the I and another I are unfolded and revealed in its beauty, and love because in it the essences unite themselves to God.

Martin Buber has written that the "summation of (Boehme's) thoughts, is the problem of the relation of the individual to the world." For Boehme, as a precursor to existentialist thought, the Godhead, as the Undgrund or Abyss, is unknowable to human beings.

This thesis analyses Jakob Boehme's (1575-1624) seminal concept of Ungrund, an idea which has strongly influenced the history of science in many ways.
Ungrund (according to its use in Boehme's last major work, the Mysterium Magnum of 1622) can best be defined as an atopical negation which has the status of a paradox or negation in the laws of logic.

 Seminar   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In her stimulating reexamination of the use the Jena Romantics made of the image and writings of Jakob Böhme, Paola Mayer argues that Böhme’s ‘influence’ on the Romantics is largely a myth of their own creation that scholars subsequently have been only too ready to re-echo and amplify.
Rather than speaking of influence, Mayer prefers the term ‘appropriation,’ in that it better suits how Tieck, Novalis, Ritter, Friedrich Schlegel, and Schelling selected those images about and from Böhme that accorded with their own program of fusing together religion and natural philosophy through Poesie.
In the process, Mayer’s lucid, well-written analysis of Jena Romanticism’s appropriation of Jakob Böhme raises issues with broader implications for the field of German Romanticism.
