One of the foundations of Amin Khouli’s literary interpretation theory is Neo-I’tizizali thoughts. This paper, using an analytical-critical approach based on documentary data, in addition to the introduction of Khuoli’s theory, has revealed and criticized the framework of the Neo-I’tizizali’s thought in Khouli’s theory, which has been effective in his later interpretive approaches. One of the advantages of the Khouli’s Neo-I’tizizali principle is the social interpretation approach of his theory. In contrast, due to the inherent shortcomings of this thought, some challenges have been made including the innovative view in all dimensions of religion, the disconnection with the interpretive tradition, the relative understanding of the Quran and the dominance of the text centrality in the interpretation. Also, the lack of a revelatory look on mind is one of the problems of this theory. In addition, the extremist attention to understanding of the primary audience and the ignorance of the Quran’s culturaliztion would lead to inclination towards cultural interpretation. The foundations of the Khouli’s Neo-I’tizizali theory such as lack of expurgation in textual understanding principles and explaining the worldview have made it subjective-oriented. In this view, regardless of its divine aspect, the Quran as an animated text was the subject of the current investigation; therefore, its revelatory identity was denied. The Khouli’s theory has not been secure from this problem, and this is observed in the works of students and researchers relying on his theory.
