<title> SUMMARY </title>The publication of Giovanni Arduino's Risposta allegorico-romanzesc<?CTRLerr type="1" mess="Doute sur la typo" ?>a to J. J. Ferber highlights an unpublished and crucial aspect of Arduino's geology. The concept of epoch, applied to the history of the changes undergone by the Earth's crust, is put forward well before Buffon's Epoques de la Nature. Moreover the reflections of Arduino open up a «third possibility» between the catastrophist and uniformitarian hypotheses. This goes beyond the rigid antithesis between «Neptunism» and «Plutonism», which constituded the conditioning element of the study of Earth Science in Europe around the end of the eighteenth and the beginning of the nineteenth century.
