The computer and the brain by
John Von Neumann(
Book
)
135 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 2,032 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book represents the view of one of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century on the analogies between computing machines and the living human brain. John von Neumann concludes that the brain operates in part digitally, in part analogically, but uses a peculiar statistical language unlike that employed in the operation of manmade computers. This edition includes a new foreword by two eminent figures in the fields of philosophy, neuroscience, and consciousness, Paul M. Churchland and Patricia S. Churchland."Jacket

John Von Neumann(
Book

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"John von Neumann was perhaps the most influential mathematician of the twentieth century, especially if his broad influence outside mathematics is included." "The present volume is the first substantial collection of (previously mainly unpublished) letters written by von Neumann to colleagues, friends, government officials, and others. The letters give us a glimpse of the thinking of John von Neumann about mathematics, physics, computer science, science management, education, consulting, politics, and war. Readers of quite diverse backgrounds will find much of interest in this firsthand look at one of the towering figures of twentieth century science."Jacket

The first fullscale biography of the man widely regarded as the greatest scientist of the century after Einstein. Born in Budapest in 1903, John von Neumann grew up in one of the most extraordinary of scientific communities. From his arrival in America in the mid1930s  with bases in Boston, Princeton, Washington, and Los Alamos  von Neumann pioneered and participated in the major scientific and political dramas of the next three decades, leaving his mark on more fields of scientific endeavor than any other scientist. Von Neumann's work in areas such as game theory, mathematics, physics, and meteorology formed the building blocks for the most important discoveries of the century: the modern computer, game theory, the atom bomb, radar, and artificial intelligence, to name just a few. From the laboratory to the highest levels of government, this definitive biography gives us a behindthescenes look at the politics and personalities involved in these worldchanging discoveries. Written more than thirty years after von Neumann's untimely death at age fiftysix, it was prepared with the cooperation of his family, and includes information gained from interviewing countless sources across Europe and America. Norman Macrae paints a highly readable, humanizing portrait of a man whose legacy still influences and shapes modern science and knowledge
