In this paper, the aim is to highlight and analyze certain moments in the work of Merleau-Ponty when discussions took place about the condition of the natural in us. We mainly focus on the observed opposition between the evolutionist viewpoint adopted in The structure of Behavior and the perspective in the Phenomenology of Perception, based on the body as expression. We also look at studies on infantile prematuration and mention the characterization of the human body in the philosopher's courses on the notion of nature. We underline the expressive dimension of the natural in us, which emerges from Merleau-Ponty's formulations. In addition, we evidence the importance of psychoanalysis in the Merleau-Ponty's treatment of the corporeity problem.
