Based on Paul Ricoeur's text on Ethics and Policy, the article proposes a rereading that, following the same direction, go beyond Ricoeur's position, giving the ethical dimension a more fundamental status. Therefore, it is inevitable to address the issue of its first foundation. It is precisely at this level of approach that one touches the issue of religion. In this sense, the religious dimension could be a fundational feature of ethics, on the one hand, and through this, of the political activity. Some suggestions of J. B. Metz inspire that latter perspective.
