Eugenio Lecaldano’s book Sul senso della vita places the discussion about the meaning of life in a naturalized and evolutionary framework. Following his suggestion about the relevance of Darwinism for the enquiry about the meaning of life the topic of the relation between such enquiry and science is put under focus. Three possible relations between science and the meaning of life are examined: 1) scientific research about why and how human beings are interested into meaning of life; 2) scientific practice as an activity that gives meaning to life; 3) scientific data as a source for everybody’s research about meaning of life. With a special regard to this latter option, the picture of the living world emerging from Darwinian theory is a rich source of hints for personal reflection about one’s own meaning of life. In the end, some examples will be provided.
