As much of interest to mathematicians as it is to artists, as relevant to physics as to architecture, symmetry underlies almost every aspect of nature and our experience of the world. Illustrated with old engravings and original work by the author, this book moves from church windows and mirror reflections to the deepest ideas of hidden symmetries in physics and geometry to music and the arts, left- and right-handedness, and to the most enigmatic human notions of equality and justice.
