Eros and Thanatos


Division into two usually contradictory parts or opinions: “the dichotomy of the one and the many” (Louis Auchincloss). --AHD

A dichotomy is the division of concept or of a class of things into two parts which are both mutually exclusive – i.e. nothing can belong simultaneously to both parts – and jointly exhaustive – i.e. every member of the class is in one part or the other. They are often contrasting and spoken of as "opposites". The term comes from dichotomos (divided): dich- ([in] two) temnein (to cut). --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dichotomy [Feb 2006]
