Thomas Aquinas said, "action follows being;" the mode of people's action is following their mode of being, that is, people's action is one that synchronizes spirituality and materiality. Secondly, regarding the theoretical construction of the action of philosophy, we address this issue through three aspects: the fundamental meaning of being, the dynamics of being, and that change is the goal of the action of being. It is stressed that in the action theory of philosophy, action is always the specific method to practice the theory, while the goal of the action of philosophy is the return to the self, that is, to return to the self in practice. Finally, it is specifically suggested in the action theory of philosophy that a philosopher should be equipped with two different abilities: the ability to perceive and the ability to see things as a whole. It is particularly stressed that the meaning of perception in the action theory of philosophy is that one could start with meditation and then help others in an effective way, while the ability to see things as a whole is consisted of seeing the integrated and general abilities and concerning with humanistic issues
