The tendency inherent in all organic things to return to an inorganic state. According to Freud, the death-drive manifests in the psyche as a tendency toward self-destruction, or more precisely the elimination of tension, which can also be turned outwards, whereby it becomes aggression. The idea of the death-drive originates, to some degree, with the concept of the compulsion to repeat, which refers to behaviour which cannot be explained by the concept of the pleasure principle.

He initially described a class of drives known as the life instincts and believed that these drives were responsible for much of our behavior. Eventually, he came to believe that life instincts alone could not explain all human behavior. Sometimes referred to as sexual instincts, the life instincts are those which deal with basic survival, pleasure, and reproduction.
