Abstract


In this paper the authors take up the attempt to identify the main theoretical tracks of gender categories, which were initially present in the classical sociology, and then in the singled out specialized contemporary sociological subdisciplines.
In the paper the transformations within the sociological conceptualization of gender are presented as the peculiar de-essentialisation. The expression of de-essentialising of gender can be noticed in the gradual departing from its biological and naturalistic understanding, which is grounded in the classical reflection of sociology, towards the defining gender in the social and cultural categories (gender roles, power relations, interactions) and finally towards generał deconstruction of the all essential concepts of sexual and gender identities.
