The recently developed "pretentious approach" to analytic number theory studies the asymptotic behavior of arithmetic functions using Halasz's theorem from 1975. This allows one to prove a number of important results in analytic number theory without relying on the analytic continuation of the Riemann zeta function. The goal of the thesis is to study and compare the classical and pretentious proofs of such theorems, such as the prime number theorem, Siegel-Walfisz theorem or Halasz theorem, and possibly try to further generalize some of these results.
