An adaptive ability proper to human systems able to understand specific adaptive needs and plan corresponding adaptive modes.
This notion has been derived from K. BOULDING: differentiation between biogenetic and noogenetic evolutionary forms (i.e. whose evolution is strongly influenced by their brain).
Noogenetic adaptation produces an acceleration of the rhythm of adaptation, which also explains the evolutive acceleration of mankind, that does not depend anymore merely on biological change. (F. MEYER, 1954, 1974)
