Chapter Summary

The term "genres" this chapter has been borrowed from literary studies, but is meant to refer to the semantic categories of the smallest discussion units in Ibn Rushd's chapter. It is hoped that a study on this level of the text sheds some light on the ways in which legal discourse proceeds. Ibn Rushd's book lends itself particularly well to this approach, because it is a khilāf work and the author thus feels inclined at times to explain why a khilāf came about. The work of the great scholar, in whose honor this Festschrift has been compiled, is characterized by sustained close reading and Mitdenken of the sources, so the author cherishes the hope that the approach he has used, simple though it is, might be of some interest to him. The chapter on lost property is divided into 41 semantic units.

Keywords: khilāf work; Ibn Rushd
