The article attempts to chronologically track and expose attempts to measure consumer loyalty to brands. The chronological approach is based on three arguments: the need to take account of progress in the measurement attempts; to find conflicting views and to point out solutions; to make predictions about the future of measurement. We criticize gross empiricism. in which, without elaboration of a conceptual definition, it directly leans to an operational one, on which side the measurement itself.
