Thanatos by Armand Vespertine Book Summary:
The age of the Transhuman has come. The eldest of us remember a time when Human beings were the only sapient race upon the Earth. Any gods or aliens or monsters that might dwell somewhere out in the unfathomable darkness were terrifyingly silent. But now, men have forged new bodies for themselves, bodies with powers beyond those of mere mortals. These inhuman bodies have twisted their minds into something inhuman, something monstrous. This new race of monsters has nothing but contempt for what they once were. Humanity must either submit to them, or face extinction.Or, we could fight. This is the story of the mere mortals who refused to kneel to their Transhuman oppressors, refused to see Humanity evolve into a race of monsters, and refused to abandon hope.
The Thanatos Syndrome by Walker Percy Book Summary:
When Dr. Tom More (of Love in the Ruins) is released on parole from state prison, he returns to Feliciana, Louisiana, the parish where he was born and bred, and where he practiced psychiatry before his arrest. Upon arriving, he notices something strange in almost everyone around him: unusual sexual behavior in women patients, a bizarre loss of inhibition, a lack of complexity in speech - even his own wife's extraordinary success at bridge tournaments, during which her mind seems to function like a computer. With the ingenious help of his attractive cousin, Dr. Lucy Lipscomb, More begins to uncover a criminal experiment to "improve" people's behavior by drugging the local water supply. But beyond this scheme are activities so sinister that even Tom More wouldn't believe them if he hadn't witnessed them with his own eyes.
Playing Chicken With Thanatos by Díre McCain Book Summary:
“Díre McCain has given us a mesmerizing, startling, lyrical addition not just to the literature of drugs and madness, but to literature itself.” — Nick Tosches The long-awaited debut book from Díre McCain, editor of Paraphilia Magazine.

Relações entre Don Juan, Eros e Thanatos (Portuguese Edition) by Ester Abreu Vieira Oliveira Book Summary:
A literatura em língua espanhola tem sido motivo de nosso trabalho, estudo e prazer. E Don Juan, entre as muitas figuras literárias dessa literatura, tais como: EI Cid, Arcipreste de Hita, Celestina, Don Quijote, El Patriarca e Los Buendías, nos faz pensar e sentir a sua eterna existência. Com o cognome de Tenorio, o mito de Don Juan ressurge, na literatura espanhola. Personagem dramática e literária dá nova vida a uma personagem já mítica que não conhece o amor, senão a ânsia de buscá-lo. Nesse sentido, ele não fica em consonância com os pares famosos: Tristão/ Isolda e Romeu/ Julieta. Representante de um mito do presente, do imediatismo, quase sempre retorna à literatura na forma de uma pessoa que não tem tempo para amar e não sente a dor de uma paixão inacessível como a de Apolo, com o desprezo da deusa Dafne. É sempre alguém que gasta as suas horas de ócio, a maioria, em seduzir, em despertar o desejo de uma mulher a quem abandonará, realizado o seu intento.

BEYOND THE PLEASURE PRINCIPLE (Unabridged): Human's Struggle between Eros & Thanatos - Libido & Compulsion by Sigmund Freud Book Summary:
This carefully crafted ebook: "BEYOND THE PLEASURE PRINCIPLE (Unabridged)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.Beyond the Pleasure Principle is a book by Sigmund Freud that marks a major turning point in his theoretical approach. Previously, Freud attributed most human behavior to the sexual instinct (Eros or libido). With this book, Freud went "beyond" the simple pleasure principle, developing his theory of drives with the addition of the death drive (often referred to as Thanatos). The book describes humans as struggling between two opposing drives: Eros, which produces creativity, harmony, sexual connection, reproduction, and self-preservation; and Thanatos, which brings destruction, repetition, aggression, compulsion, and self-destruction. With Beyond the Pleasure Principle, Freud also introduced the question of violence and destructiveness in humans. These themes play an important role in some later writings, when Freud suggested that civilization's major function is to repress the death instinct.Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) was an Austrian neurologist and the father of psychoanalysis, a clinical method for treating psychopathology through dialogue between a patient and a psychoanalyst. In creating psychoanalysis, Freud developed therapeutic techniques such as the use of free association and discovered transference, establishing its central role in the analytic process. Freud's redefinition of sexuality to include its infantile forms led him to formulate the Oedipus complex as the central tenet of psychoanalytical theory. His analysis of dreams as wish-fulfillments provided him with models for the clinical analysis of symptom formation and the mechanisms of repression as well as for elaboration of his theory of the unconscious.
