Abstract

The discovery of the Higgs boson is a major milestone in our progress toward understanding the natural world. A particular aim of this review is to show how diverse ideas came together in the conception of electroweak symmetry breaking that led up to the discovery. I also survey what we know now that we did not know before, what properties of the Higgs boson remain to be established, and what new questions we may now hope to address.
