This chapter presents the author's view of the current state of paleontology as one of the leaders of the current generation of paleobiologists. It identifies six major areas for investigation that will define the future of paleobiology and stresses the need for continued efforts to unite paleobiology with the wider community of evolutionary biology. This chapter also provides an important manifesto for students and practitioners of paleobiology.
