**Abstract: **We
review the methods of J.Thevenaz and P.Webb to classify simple Mackey functors. For a finite
group G and a field k we discuss their bijective
correspondence between irreducible Mackey functors and equivalence classes of
pairs (H,V) where H is a subgroup of G and V is a
simple kN(H)/H-module. The method makes crucial use
of some adjointness properties of induction and
inflation.
