Toshihiko Izutsu

Paperback

9789839154559

 

In Ethico-Religious Concepts in the Qur'an, Toshihiko Izutsu provides a masterful and lucid exposition of the Qur'anic teachings. At the time of its original publication in 1959 as The Structure of Ethical Terms in the Koran - revised under the current title in 1966 - it was one of the first studies of the Qur'anic worldview to have appeared in a Western language and its importance has not changed with the passing of time.
