Abstract

After so many distinguished speakers surveyed the role of strange particles in the search for the quark-gluon plasma (QGP), it is hard not to be repetitive, or alternatively, imprecise and vague. We choose therefore to present a somewhat provocative and primarily conceptual summary of the lectures and our views, and more generally, of the experimental and theoretical situation and the future research program. Our point of view is that strangeness has positively provided evidence of new collective physics phenomena occurring in hot and dense hadronic matter formed in highly relativistic heavy ion collisions.
