anomie (anomy) An absence, breakdown, confusion, or conflict in the *norms of a society. The term anomia is scattered throughout classical Greek writings, where it may be linked to the adjective anomos, meaning 'without law'. It has since assumed a wider and often negative connotation of breakdown and catastrophe. In sociology the term is most frequently identified with the work of Emile *Durkheim and Robert Merton.
