This chapter attempts to reconstruct the notion of life, if there is one, in Darwin's theory of natural selection and Jacob's idea of tinkering evolution. The chapter isinterprets the ateleological character of the modern theory of evolution in order to show its incompatibility with the idea that a temporal-irreversible increase of complexity as takes place in evolution. The ideas of natural selection of traits produced by random variation and of tinkering evolution help to deconstruct the understanding of life as a self-appropriating process that organizes itself through historical becoming.

Keywords:   Evolution, natural selection, variation, time, Darwin, Jacob
