Despite the great success of quantum theory, there are many aspects at its very foundations that are yet to be understood. I will discuss how single photons can help to answer questions ranging from the ultimate limits of measurement accuracy to consequences of closed timelike curves and the reality of the quantum wavefunction itself.
