Abstract : Various approaches to canonical (local) quantization are related to each other, and their current status evaluated. Beginning with a review of Hamiltonian theory with first-class constraints this talk discusses Schrodinger quantization, Hamilton-Jacobi theory, with and without superspace, Feynman integrals, and the sandwich conjecture, and concludes with some speculations of a general nature.
