Abstract

An extensive collection of writings on scientific, mathematical and aesthetic aspects of symmetry is used to discuss the most appropriate range of the concept of symmetry. When symmetry is equated with isometrics, it refers to transformations that keep shape identical. Examples are given to show that for perceptual and artistic purposes this definition is too broad and also too narrow.
