Order in the Universe: The Symmetry Principle.
Foundation for Integrative Education, Inc., New York, NY.
The first two papers in this booklet provide a review of the pervasiveness of symmetry in nature and art, discussing how symmetry can be traced through every domain open to our understanding, from all aspects of nature to the special provinces of man; the checks and balances of government, the concept of equal justice, and the aesthetic ordering of color and form in art. The third and final paper, "Physics Reveals that Evolution has a Goal," considers evidence for "unification through differentiation" toward which evolution appears to be moving as theorized by the renowned evolutionist, Teilhard de Chardin.
