Chapter Summary

The discourses on various phenomena that have the common characteristic of being an act of God (natural phenomena, eschatological future, past events) form the basis of a self-referential argument. Eschatology is present in the Qur&s;anic text, whether it is about the cataclysm of the end of time, the life of man after death, their judgment during last Judgment, or awards in Paradise and the punishment in hell. In a more general way, the eschatological discourse serves as support for various forms of implicit self-reference. This chapter deals with the description and the comments made by the text on the past, then deduces their functions in relation to the self-reference. To strengthen our connection, it shows how the links among the discourse on natural phenomena, eschatological and self-referential discourses are enrolled in a same organization of a number of suras. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: eschatological discourses; god's act; natural phenomena; past events' discourse; Qur&s;anic text; self-referential argument; suras
