This overview/survey assesses the state of the discipline for the failure of homogeneous and isotropic materials. It starts with a quick review of the many historical but unsuccessful failure investigations. Then, it outlines the dysfunctional current state of the field for failure criteria. Finally, it converges toward the technical prospects that can and very likely will bring much needed change and progress in the future.
