For an excellent insight into how the term "Darwinism" was differentiated from "evolution" in the late 19th century, the article by John Hedley Brooke in the current issue of PSCF is well worth reading. He says that while evolution was widely accepted, Darwinism was used to refer to evolution by natural selection, which was not widely accepted at that time.
