Let $M$ be an $R$module. We say that $M$ is reflexive if the natural map $M\rightarrow M^{**}$ is an isomorphism.
I'd like to know if there exists a module isomorphic to its bidual but not reflexive, do you know an example?

add comment 
Yes, there are such examples. In the case of Abelian groups for example, one can have a group A which is not reflexive, but which is isomorphic to its double dual. The book "Almost Free Modules" by Eklof and Mekler (North Holland) contains much of what is known. As a specific example, take E to be a stationary and costationary subset of $\omega_1$, and let $X=\omega_1 + 1\backslash E$, given the subspace topology (of the space $\omega_1 +1$ with the interval topology). Then $C(X, Z)$ (continuous functions to the integers with the discrete topology) is such a group. In fact for this group $C(X,Z)^{**} = \sigma[C(X,Z)] \oplus Z$ where $\sigma$ is the natural map, so that $C(X,Z)$ is not reflexive, but $C(X,Z)\oplus Z \cong C(X,Z)$ because for example $C(X,Z)$ has $Z^\omega$ as a summand. 


$J$
(the James space) that is isometrically isomorphic to$J^{\ast\ast}$
but for which the image of$J \to J^{\ast\ast}$
has codimension 1. See mathoverflow.net/questions/43986/… – Faisal Sep 20 '11 at 21:51
