Review of the hardback: 'The authors represent an impressive array of prominent names in the philosophy of physics at the start of the 21st century. This work deserves to be in the libraries of all institutions of higher learning that offer graduate level courses in physics or philosophy, and on the shelves of all researchers on the philosophy of physics. Careful and thoughtful editing has resulted in an attractive format, free of the typographical errors and other infelicities that currently so often mar books of this type. Good bibliographies and a detailed and competent index further extend its usefulness.' MetaScience
Review of the hardback: '… will be useful not only as a reference work for researchers, but also as a valuable resource for a graduate course in the foundations and philosophy of modern physics.' Contemporary Physics
Review of the hardback: 'This expert collection of articles on many aspects of symmetries in physics is much needed and long overdue. I found the collection timely, informative and stimulating. Many of the contributions are deft and elegant in technical treatment and clear and thoughtful in philosophical analysis. I recommend this volume to anyone who is seriously interested in philosophical issues on symmetries in physics.' International Studies in the Philosophy of Science
Review of the hardback: 'I can warmly recommend this excellent collection for which the editors have assembled an impressive all-star crew of contributors. Congratulations for a job well done!' Studies in History and Philosophy of Modern Physics
