adaptationism (uncountable)

  1. A set of methods in the evolutionary sciences for distinguishing traits resulting from adaptation from those arising through other processes.
    • 2006, Massimo Pigliucci, Jonathan Michael Kaplan, Making Sense of Evolution: The Conceptual Foundations of Evolutionary Biology[1], University of Chicago Press:
      Until one is clear about just what one means by adaptationism, what evidence one needs to accuse someone of being an "adaptationist" will remain vague; this rather diminishes the force of the accusation.
