To whomever it was who called me out on this awkward solecism: you're right.
 I picked up the phrase from Dick Lewontin's June (or was it July?) 1983
article in the New York Review of Books (serves me right!) entitled, I
think, "Darwin's Real Revolution."  Also, R.H. Wharton uses the term in his
Darwinian Revolution in Science.

The proper term is, as you suggest, Cartesian.
