    About this item:

    The author analyzes the guiding spirit of the Islamic moral code in this work, the basic ethical relationship of man to God. He asserts that, according to the Quranic conception, God is of an ethical nature and acts upon man in an ethical way. The resulting implications for man are enormous, requiring devotion not merely to God but to living one's life ethically. Izutsu shows that for the Quran our ethical response to God's actions is religion itself; it is at the same time both ethics and religion. He explores these themes by employing ethnolinguistics, a theory of the interrelations between linguistic cultural patters, to analyze the semantic struct of major concepts in the Quran.
