The word ‘unomia’ is a neologism coined by the author, as the combination of two well-known words: Utopia (Thomas More) and Anomie (Emile Durkheim). Unomia is an epistemic predicate; it is a predicate of knowledge of facts: the uno-mic knowledge of facts is knowledge which does not make reference to rules (to nómoi). Is the unomic knowledge of facts possible? In order to answer this ques-tion, the author uses two new concepts: nomotropism and eidotropism. The third part of the paper deals with the paradoxes of nomotropism and the paradoxes of eidotropism.
