Hydrodynamics is a well-established field with a venerable history. In this talk, I will focus on foundational questions in hydrodynamics which one has to understand in order to describe matter at very high temperature and very high density. Do the equations of hydrodynamics even make sense? To what degree can the crudeness of hydrodynamics be improved? What about the phenomena that hydrodynamics should describe but fails to? And what about the phenomena that hydrodynamics shouldn't describe, but does?
