## Main Question or Discussion Point

Opinions on the book? Enjoying it, but I am an non-scientist sympathetic to the notion that we may have reached the practical end of theoretical physics. I wonder what happens to the field as we reach the point where no working theoretical physicist has added anything that expanded our actual knowledge of nature. Does the discipline become like English lit, with an endless succession of fads good for nothing but generating papers to obtain tenure? Is quantum foundations like that?

Anyway the premise is that the requirement for naturalness and mathematical elegance has hindered the discipline
