You're Being Tortured In The Morning

There is no need for much of a preamble here, except to say this activity deals with some of the issues thrown up by British philosopher, Bernard Williams's journal article "The Self and the Future", which first appeared in The Philosophical Review in April 1970.

   --Bertrand Russell.
