[en] This article shows how the figure of the Continuum can describe pluralities not only in the realm of sex/gender, but also in that of migration, space, border, culture, and time using the four dimensions of the Continuum: physical/body/matter – psychological/feeling/experience –social/behaviour/doing – sexual/sexual orientation/desire. In the first part of the article the figure of the Continuum will be described in its origination and summarised in its application to the concepts of gender and migration. The second part of the article will shine a first light on the application of the figure of the Continuum to the concepts of space, border, culture, and time. The article considers the question of the dissolution of binarities by the figure of the Continuum, as well as the question of the meanings and consequences of categorial systems of order. The musings of the article result in the notion that a more wide-spread application of the figure of the Continuum could inspire a new, broader humanism, and thus be understood as a basis for further reflections working towards an overstepping of post- and transhumanistic approaches.
