Abstract: Stable cohomotopy groups of EilenbergMac Lane spectra of finite groups are shown to be trivial. This implies that the stable homotopy category, which is large enough to represent ordinary cohomology theory, cannot be selfdual. It can also be interpreted as an evidence to support Freyd's generating hypothesis and a proof of a stable version of a conjecture of D. Sullivan.
