Unfinished and published posthumously, The Computer and the Brain was Von Neumann's final work. In it, the influential scientist and mathematician synthesized what was known about the brain's operations and how it related to modern computer technology and its functions. It was the poly-math's hope that "a deeper mathematical study of the nervous system may alter our understanding of mathematics and logic." Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket. (Item #5073)
