Product description


Dr. Weyl presents a masterful and fascinating survey of the applications of the principle of symmetry in sculpture, painting, architecture, ornament, and design; its manifestations in organic and inorganic nature; and its philosophical and mathematical significance.-- "Scientific American"

This short book on a vast subject is the work of a master. With a few sure and authoritative words [Weyl] gives us the heart of the matter. There is no book . . . quite like this one on the subject of symmetry and I doubt if any book will be written in the future that will not in some way lean upon this one. . . . [I]t contains so much besides mathematics that it can still be read with profit and enjoyed by someone who has not advanced beyond long division.---John Tyler Bonner, Science

Vivid and picturesque. . . . [Weyl is] an outstanding thinker.---Wolfgang Yourgrau, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research

Weyl offers deep insight into [the concept of symmetry], its foundations in group theory, its applications in physics, chemistry, and biology, and its role in art.---Manfred Eigen and Ruthild Winkler in, Laws of the Game-- "Scientific American" --This text refers to the paperback edition.
