Given this understanding of modes of production as different ways human society self-organizes to address to the Problem of survival, Deleuze & Guattari go on to delineate (in Anti-Oedipus) three actual historical mechanisms of self-organization, which they call “coding” in the “savage” mode of production, “over-coding” in the “barbarian” mode of production, and “axiomatization” in the “civilized” or capitalist mode of production.
But also important are the synthetic categories or “modes of libidinal production” originally outlined in the third chapter of Anti-Oedipus, but re-appearing here in A Thousand Plateaus in slightly different form—each of the three modes being itself a kind of Solution to the human ISSO Problem, as we have just seen. When we get to A Thousand Plateaus, the modern Solution is further analyzed in terms of an additional set of synthetic categories representing sub-Solutions: liberalism, fascism, totalitarianism and authoritarianism.
