Abstract

We outline three principles that should guide us in the construction of a theory of canonical quantum gravity: 1) diffeomorphism invariance, 2) implementing the proper dynamics and related constraint algebra, 3) local Lorentz invariance. We illustrate each of them with its role in model calculations in loop quantum gravity.
