In the last decades two different and apparently unrelated lines of research have increasingly connected mathematics and evolutionism. Indeed, on the one hand, different attempts to formalize Darwinism have been made (see for a survey Barberousse and Samadi, 2015; Thompson, 2007), while, on the other hand, different attempts to naturalize logic and mathematics have been put forward (see for a survey Dutilh Novaes, 2012; Van Kerkhove, 2006). The works of the scientists who have tried to shed light on the cognitive mechanisms underlying human reasoning and the evolutionary roots of our cognitive abilities (e.g. Dehaene et al. 2005), and the work of the mathematicians who have tried to construct more and more sophisticated mathematical models of the evolutionary processes (e.g. Batty et al. 2014), have stimulated interesting philosophical reflections in the fields of philosophy of mathematics and philosophy of biology. These researches may appear either completely distinct or at least in
