Disorder may refer to :

  • Chaos, unpredictability and in the metaphysical sense, it is the opposite of law and order
  • Disease, an abnormality of the body or mind that causes discomfort, dysfunction, or distress
  • Entropy, a state function of a thermodynamic system (The usage of "disorder" to explain entropy is popular, but many scientists avoid the term, as it is too unclear and judgmental.)
