This classical theory was true, Samuelson explained, as a matter of mathematical deduction, and its nontriviality was “attested by the thousands of important and intelligent men who have never been able to grasp the doctrine for themselves or to believe it after it was explained to them.”
As such its central claims need not meet standards of testability and fitness need not be defined in terms which assure the nontriviality, testability and direct explanatory power of the theory of natural selection.
We propose a principle for the identification of nontriviality.
