ABSTRACT
Natural selection is used as title and argument to think about the model of nature represented by the biological principle of evolution: from Lamarck forward on with a stop in the Darwinian option that in middle century shapes the underlying idea in a selective key. Nature is submitted to the fortuitous principle of surviving under forced competition (natural selection), defining adaptation to the environment as indeed a fortuitous process opposite to a necessary teleological adjustment proposed by the adversary. Evolutionary history can be reconstructed as a collection of continued revenges between defender and supporter of natural selection, explaining how and why nature transforms itself in the course of time towards alternative forms.
