After briefly reviewing the main paradigms of our theoretical understanding of the quantum Hall effect, I highlight some issues which I believe are not well understood. Included in those are the robustness of fractional charge at rather high temperature, the elusiveness of the universal limit for the physics of the edge, and the physics of non-abelian quantum Hall states. I conclude with a few comments on the role the physics of the quantum Hall effect plays in some other condensed matter systems.
