Rev. Mod. Phys. 95, 030501 (2023)

This is an extended version of my Nobel Lecture, delivered on December 8, 2021. I will recall the genesis of the concept of multiple equilibria in natural sciences. I will then describe my contribution to the development of this concept in the framework of statistical mechanics. Finally, I will briefly mention the cornucopia of applications of these ideas both in physics and in other disciplines.
