    Merci, Christine! I hope I can find a synopsis in English - my French is pretty shaky.

    I think that I can help you here! It's just concerning a debate between Smolin and Darmour in Paris (June 2007). The page tells about the unsuccess of the string theory. Troubles in physics.

    Thanks. I hope that the debate is transcribed into English.

    :grumpy: It's not true! Your translation isn't literal.
    The seminar is called "from string theory to quantum gravity"
    and the introduction says that contemporary physics is unsatisfactory for the reasons we know and that there are two main approaches, ST and QG, that's all.
    That's French par condicio, one from ST vs one from QG...
    I saw Damour two years ago in a conference, he is a good speaker quite famous in France.
    So the favourite player would be him, he is the local one.

    Thank you for the clarification. That sounds like a more even-handed treatment of the field and it would make for an interesting debate.

    Ok Ok Ok; sorry for the imprecision and thanks for the translation (I was too lazy to do it entirely)
