Black holes are one of the few available laboratories for testing theoretical ideas in fundamental physics. Since Hawking’s result that they radiate a thermal spectrum, black holes have been regarded as thermodynamic objects with associated temperature, entropy, etc. While this is an extremely beautiful picture it has also lead to numerous puzzles. In this talk I will describe the two-loop correction to scalar correlation functions due to \phi^4 interactions and explain why this might have implications for our current view of semi-classical black holes.
