I have two minor doubts as to the last line. Is Varying Degrees correct?
Also, may I use "do overlap" in the given context? Is it acceptable? The intent, obviously, is to put some [contrasting] emphasis on the last line. Would you suggest to omit it?
Before proceeding in the discussion of such effects*, it is worth noting that these are not discrete categories. The distinction was proposed for the sake of conceptual parsimony. In practice, they do overlap and interpenetrate one another to varying degrees.

* Before proceeding in discussing – does it sound better ?!
