The Olympia conference [/php/DatabaseMenu.php?tab=5&type=display&eventid=30 Frontiers of Fundamental Physics] was a gathering of about a hundred scientists who carry on research in conceptually important areas of physical science (they do "fundamental physics").  Most of them were physicists, but also historians and philosphers of science were well represented.  An important fraction of the participants could be considered "heretical" because they disagreed with the validity of one or several fundamental assumptions of modern physics.  Common to all participants was an excellent scientific level coupled with a remarkable intellectula honesty: we are proud to present to the readers this certainly unique book.

Alternative ways of considering fundamental matters should of course be vitally important for the progress of science, unless one wanted to admit that physics at the end of the XXth century has already obtained the final truth, a very unlikely possibility even if one accepted the doubtful idea of the existence of a "final" truth.  The merits of the Olympia conference should therefore not be judged a priori in a positive or in a negative way depending on one's refusal or acceptance, respectively, of basic principles of contemporary sience, but considered after reading the actual new proposals and evidence there presented.  They seem very important to us... - From the Preface.
