What am I permitted to hope? Taking the Kantian question as a point of departure, the article tries to illustrate the role of hope in Kant’s thought, with special attention to Religion within boundaries of the mere reason and to its connections with Critique of the power of Judgement. Secondly the article focuses the role of hope in Ricoeur’s thought and his interpretation of Kant and of the role of imagination. Finally it tries to make interact the two authors. Hope is the overabundant and meaningfull presupposition that originates creativity of imagination and produces not only analogical representations, but also aesthetic and mithical-poetic ideas that, overcoming the boundaries of the concept, give to think more and more. Only a hopefull thought can stimulate reason not to surrender to non-sense and to run the risk of rational thought.
