Proper noun 
Usage notes 
Freud did not use the term “Thanatos” – instead he used Todestrieb (“death drive”) – and scholarly works refer to it as “death drive”, but the term “Thanatos” is commonly used in psychoanalysis, in duality with Eros, having been introduced there by Paul Federn.
- (death drive): Eros (life drive)
