Le Dalāʾil al-iʿǧāz (Signes et preuves de l’inimitabilité du Coran) de ʿAbd al-Qāhir al-Ǧurǧānī (m. 471/1074) est reconnu comme l’un des traités majeurs de la rhétorique arabe. Et en tant que discours du savoir dont l’ambition affichée est celle d’une refondation de cette discipline, le sujet connaissant y tient une place centrale, en partie relativement à son rôle d’instance énonçante. C’est au niveau de cet opérateur d’énonciation que nous situerons notre analyse de la configuration discursive d’un contenu cognitif dans Dalāʾil. Ainsi, deux actes épistémiques vont retenir notre attention : la quête des signes, dont l’acte de voir (ʿayān) est l’instrument principal, et la quête des secrets. Dans cette double quête, le « je » du discours, comme expression formelle du sujet du savoir, est tenu pour une instance énonçante ancrée. C’est le « je-ici » identifiant le « champ positionnel du sujet » (Benveniste) dont il faut définir le parcours de compétence à travers lequel le sujet du savoir dans Dalāʾil se déploie comme une affirmation de soi.
