The Future of High Energy Stellar Physics

eROSITA is poised to unleash a deluge of information on the stellar X-ray sky in a nexus with other powerful complementary missions and capabilities, such as TESS, Gaia and LSST. I will endeavour to provide a brief overview of the outstanding problems in high energy stellar physics, and the status of our knowledge deep into the Chandra and XMM-Newton era. I will describe some important aspects that eROSITA can tackle, and possibly solve, from probing the distributions of hidden massive young stellar clusters to stellar X-ray population synthesis and understanding magnetic dynamos and the evolution of stellar energetic radiation.
