ABSTRACT
The following article is divided into three parts. In the first, the fundamental theses that give form to the renewed philosophical tradition to the philosophy of action are described; their philosophical base and differences with natural events are showed. In the second part, and starting from the proposed notion of what actions are, it is argued that it is promissory to assume actions as the object of study of social sciences; in technical language, it is maintained that the actions are the ontology of social reality. In the third part, beginning with the inquiry of some reports that deal with migration in the coffee region, it shows the real possibility that social science researchers may use philosophy of action as a part of their theoretical premises of research.
