Mathematics/Neumann, J. von: (J. von Neumann, The Computer and the Brain, New Haven, 1958, p. 82): when we talk about mathematics, then perhaps we are discussing a secondary language based on the primary language that is actually used by the central nervous system. Thus, the external forms of our mathematics are not absolutely relevant when it comes to judging which mathematical or logical language is actually used by the central nervous system._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
