This is a review of the aspirations and disappointments of the canonical quantization of geometry. I compare the two chief ways of looking at canonical gravity, geometrodynamics and connection dynamics. I capture as much of the classical theory as I can by pictorial visualization. Algebraic aspects dominate my description of the quantization program. I address the problem of observables. The reader is encouraged to follow the broad outlines and not worry about the technical details. CLASSICAL… CONTINUE READING
