Theoretical approaches to the development of an understanding of the behaviour of simple supercooled liquids near the structural glass transition are reviewed and our work on this problem, based on the density functional theory of freezing and replicated liquid state theory, are summarized in this context. A few directions for further work on this problem are suggested.
