What is the difference between Sex and Gender in the language?

A short linguistic lecture from the perspective of Edith Stein’s dual anthropology. In our meeting in June we’re going to focus on a linguistic question of the meaning of two terms which seem to cause a stir nowadays – Sex and Gender. Christian anthropology states two sexes as an image and creation of God and thus referring to a concept of an objective, unchangeable truth. The linguistic approach on the other hand is to observe, follow and name social changes, which also means using new terms or giving the well-known ones new meanings. In this field of tension we’d like to discuss together what is the Christian perspective of a person as man and woman described by Edith Stein.
