ABSTRACT
The author reflects on several thinkers and inventors who can be considered as real heroes of tribology. He argues that the inventors, such as Egyptian King Tutankhamun and the Greek philosopher Plato, who were depicted in the book "History of Tribology," by Duncan Dowson are not the real heroes of tribology because they contributed to the downsizing of the tribological employment base. The author regards inventors James Watt and Reynold B. Johnson as the real heroes of tribology.
