Editorial Reviews


"Will be useful not only as a reference work for researchers, but also as a valuable resource for a graduate couse in the foundation and philosophy of modern physics." Contemporary Physics, P. Mainwood

Book Description

This book brings together current philosophical discussions of symmetry in physics, highlighting the main issues and controversies, and providing an entry into the subject for both physicists and philosophers. It covers all the fundamental symmetries of modern physics, such as CPT and permutation symmetry, as well as discussing symmetry-breaking and general interpretational issues. For each topic, classic texts are followed by new review articles and shorter commentaries. Suitable for courses on the foundations of physics, philosophy of physics and philosophy of science. Also a valuable reference for students and researchers.
