Recorded since 1596, from Middle French _hypothese_, from Late Latin _hypothesis_, from Ancient Greek _ὑπόθεσις_ (hupóthesis, “base, basis of an argument, supposition”), literally “a placing under”, itself from _ὑποτίθημι_ (hupotíthēmi, “I set before, suggest”), from _ὑπό_ (hupó, “below”) + _τίθημι_ (títhēmi, “I put, place”).

HYPOTHESIS (_plural_ HYPOTHESES) * (sciences) Used loosely, a tentative conjecture explaining an observation, phenomenon or scientific problem that can be tested by further observation, investigation and/or experimentation. As a scientific term of art, see the attached quotation. Compare to theory, and quotation given there. * 2005, Ronald H. Pine, http://www.csicop.org/specialarticles/show/intelligent_design_or_no_model_creationism, 15 October 2005: Far too many of us have been taught in school that a scientist, in the course of trying to figure something out, will first come up with a "hypothesis" (a guess or surmise—not necessarily even an "educated" guess). ... [But t]he word "hypothesis" should be used, in science, exclusively for a _reasoned, sensible, knowledge-informed explanation_ for why some phenomenon exists or occurs. An hypothesis can be as yet untested; can have already been tested; may have been falsified; may have not yet been falsified, although tested; or may have been tested in a myriad of ways countless times without being falsified; and it may come to be universally accepted by the scientific community. An understanding of the word "hypothesis," as used in science, requires a grasp of the principles underlying Occam's Razor and Karl Popper's thought in regard to "falsifiability"—including the notion that any respectable scientific hypothesis must, in principle, be "capable of" being proven wrong (if it should, in fact, just happen to be wrong), but none can ever be proved to be true. One aspect of a proper understanding of the word "hypothesis," as used in science, is that only a vanishingly small percentage of hypotheses could ever potentially become a theory. * (general) An assumption taken to be true for the purpose of argument or investigation. * (grammar) The antecedent of a conditional statement. SYNONYMS * supposition * theory * thesis * educated guess * guess * See also Wikisaurus:supposition DERIVED TERMS * hypothesize * hypothetic * hypothetical * hypothetically RELATED TERMS * alternative hypothesis * ergodic hypothesis * Avogadro's hypothesis * Fisher hypothesis * Griesbach hypothesis * null hypothesis * Riemann hypothesis TRANSLATIONS
