Rawls I 293
Time-Preference/Rationality/Sidgwick/Rawls: Rationality implies that it applies to the entire span of our lives; that something happens sooner or later is no reason to take it into account more or less strongly. However, the immediate present or near future may be a deciding factor in assessing safety or probability and we should consider how our immediate situation affects.
Rawls I 294
But none of this justifies a preference for a good because of its temporal positioning. (H. Sidgwick The Methos of Ethics, 7nd ed. London, 1907, p. 381; See also F. P. Ramsey,"A Mathematical Theory of Saving", Economic Journal, vol. 38,1928., reprinted in Arrow and Scitovsky, Readings in Welfare Economics.)
