An antinomy is a self-contradictory statement which arises as the result of a valid argument from a set of premises which contains an inherent ambiguity or contradiction.

Such apparent paradoxes can also often be classified as fallacies.

Also defined as

Some sources define an antinomy as synonymous with paradox.

To be more precise, such sources restrict the scope of the term paradox merely to that of antinomy.
