Five fundamental manifestations of symmetry in physics-reproducibility as symmetry, predictability as symmetry, symmetry of evolution of isolated physical systems, symmetry of states of physical systems, and gauge symmetry-are investigated for their essential meaning and physical significance. The approach is conceptual, to the complete exclusion of mathematical formalism.
