This chapter discusses filter analysis and uses the metaphor of a continuum to highlight the connective space between the concepts of sex and gender. It argues that filter analysis provides a method to access the continuum between nature and culture and to conceptualize the cognitive processes by which this continuum—the complex compound of biology and culture these authors describe—is simplified and organized into the categorical distinctions we perceive and thus experience.

Keywords:   filter analysis, sex differences, continuum metaphor, sex, gender
