After seven years my book on 'Symmetries of Nature' is offered to the English speaking readers. Symmetries are no longer only fundamental structures in the natural sciences. Symmetries have become a broad topic of interdisciplinary research in the humanities, too. Meanwhile the techniques of symmetry breaking have been applied to chaos theory and the theory of nonlinear complex systems, in order to explain the emergence of order in nature. These procedures which I started to study in this book (Chapter 4.3-4.4) are described in my English book 'Thinking in Complexity. The Complex Dynamics of Matter, Mind, and Mankind' which was published in 1994 (Berlin/Heidelberg/New York/Tokyo).
