Paper Abstract

A survey of the historically most widely considered 'paradigms' for the electromagnetic interaction is presented along with the conflicts or defects that each exhibited. In particular, problems derived from the concept of the 'photon' and Quantum Electrodynamics are emphasized. It is argued that a from of direct interaction on the light cone may be the optimum paradigm for this interaction.
