These notes are devoted to the intriguing and still largely unexplored links between String Theory and Higher Spins, the types of excitations that lie behind its most cherished properties. A closer look at higher–spin fields provides some further clues that String Theory describes a broken phase of a Higher–Spin Gauge Theory. Conversely, string amplitudes contain a wealth of information on higher–spin interactions that can clarify long–standing issues related to their infrared behavior.
