The death drive is sometimes referred to as Thanatos in post-Freudian thought, but this Classical term has no basis in Freud's own work. This postulated death drive allegedly compels humans to engage in risky and self-destructive acts that could lead to their own death. Behaviors such as thrill seeking, aggression, and risk taking are viewed as actions which stem from this Thanatos instinct.
