Philosophy is still relevant. However, this validity, its particular role in the social conditions we found ourselves, is far from clear and evident. For that reason is necessary to rethink philosophy in a way that captures its transforming role. Accompanied by different authors, pertaining dif-ferent philosophical school of thoughts, it is produced here a reflection on the relevant issues of Philosophy, considering it capable to influence decisively and to change the actual social context. First, two visions of the practice, as formulated by Karl Marx, are opposed: poiesis and prax-is. After reclaiming for the praxis the moral dimensión, the original con-ditions of the moral practice as concieved by Emmanuel Levinas, Zyg-munt Bauman and Enrique Dussel, are exposed. Finally, a conception of philosophy as capable of partake in the process of transformation of our moral and political context is proposed: the philosophy must propitate a change in the gaze toward the face of the others.
