Abstract
The first (1876), second (1885), and seventeenth (1965) editions of the Dewey Decimal Classification each represent a major change in the way sex and gender are classified. The intention in this paper is to determine how closely the changes in the DDC correspond to shifts in medical thought regarding sex and gender classification. The metanarrative underpinning gender classification in American intersexuality medical discourse is illuminated using Foucault's genealogical discourse analysis to determine a selection of epistemic considerations including teleology, authority/subjectivity, rhetorical space, necessary and sufficient conditions. The same criteria are used to examine the DDC's internal discourse to detect if similar epistemic shifts are at play or not and if a detectable influence can be identified.
