Quantum Gravity: puzzles and perspectives

Abstract -
Current efforts towards the construction of a theory of quantum gravity reconciling general relativity and quantum mechanics are at crossroads: in spite of a huge collective intellectual effort over more than 40 years it looks like we may still be far from a final answer. In this talk I will give an overview of different approaches to the problem, and discuss their respective merits, problems and future perspectives.
