Hedonism is not the absence of limits to our desires. Instead, it is the trust and confidence in them. When we lose this trust, we deny what it means to be human. We can reject desire, and we can fulfill desire. When we fulfill it, it brings us in relation with the world because it stimulates our senses. And only through our senses do we come into existence. The problem then is not hedonism that leads to unsustainabilty. Instead, it’s misdirected desires. For example, when we meet our desire for intimacy with ice cream (for me, preferably cookie dough ice cream). Hedonism can help us overcome unsustainability, when we reconnect to the real, underlying desires that stimulate our senses.
