Summary
This title is about ideas and themes in physics. A small set of them apply over broad areas of physics, and in that wide reach lies some of the power, beauty, and attraction of the subject. Many metaphors from ordinary language or other disciplines have been adopted by physicists, albeit with a specific and distinct flavour. The selection of topics reflects the author's own four-decade career in research physics and his resultant perspective on the subject
