Symmetries of Nature : A Handbook for Philosophy of Nature and Science

Despite their increasing specialization, the modern natural sciences derive their theories from uniform symmetric structures. Thus, old and new basic questions of natural philosophy and the philosophy of science are linked. This work is designed as a handbook on this topic, and is directed equally to philosophers, mathematicians, scientists and epistemologists.
