Chapter Summary

The conclusion chapter comprises a question "what information does the Qurʾān give to itself?". It considered two types of approaches to this question: a diachronic approach and a synchronic approach of the text. Before presenting the results of the synchronic approach of self-reference of the Qurʾān, let us recall the two constituent parts: the study of vocabulary and the study of argument strategies. This dual study of vocabulary and arguments emerge the central features of the self-referential discourse. It takes some evidence that the Qur&s;anic text constantly mentions the elements from Judaism, Christianity or Judeo-Christian sects. Qurʾān is a powerful argument that self-justification can be understood, in the context of a debate on the religious level, both as an argument against the divine origin and as a demonstration of God's ability to forcefully self-justify his authority. The original text of the chapter is in French.
