## Symmetry |

"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." "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." "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." "Vivid and picturesque. . . . [Weyl is] an outstanding thinker."
