The Born rule, a cornerstone of quantum theory usually taken as a postulate, continues to attract numerous attempts for its derivation. A critical review of these derivations, from early attempts to very recent results, is presented. It is
argued that the Born rule cannot be derived from the other postulates of quantum theory without some additional assumptions.
