This work aims to present Paul Ricoeur’s ideas and critiques on the Hegelian philosophy found in his book From Text to Action, specifically in the chapter about Practical Reason. On this specific chapter, his main motivation will be to solve the problematic generated by the idea of a project, in his opinion impossible, of a total mediation (the Hegelian temptation). As Ricoeur’s proposal is developed from a hermeneutics based on phenomenology he conceives the human acting as a fundamental point to his reflection. This way he looks for a concept to practical reason which satisfies the scientific and technical rationality, and which, even in these terms, deserves to be called Reason. For this, Ricoeur works on the contemporary theory of the action and of the comprehensible sociology, following the concepts that result from this theory: reason for acting, practical reasoning, rule of action and rule-governed behavior. This analysis result in a threshold of the two most important classical problems of the meaningful action, the ones related to Kant’s practical reason and to Hegel’s Sittlichkeit (concrete ethical life).
