Abstract
Tribology is the science and engineering of rubbing surfaces. This article presents a historical overview of tribology evolution from prehistory to the highly advanced stage reached nowadays. Phenomenological analyses based on observation and experimentation gave rise to a progressive understanding of the processes of friction, wear and lubrication, with application to many industrial problems. Multiple industrial reports published during the last few decades have shown the huge impact of tribology on economy and ecology, such as the classical Jost Report in the United Kingdom (1966), that has been followed up to the present by similar investigations worldwide
