SANCHEZ RON, José Manuel. Von Neumann’s dream and Freud’s reality. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2003, n.85, pp.77-87. ISSN 0211-5735.

Taking as starting point what John von Neumann wrote in his book, Computer and the Brain, and what Sigmun Freud thought and wrote in his Project for a Scientific Psychology, the question of whether the human brain can be understood (or reduced) on the basis of physics and mathematics as they are understood presently, in considered. To do that special attention is paid to question such as: "conduct versus activity". Limits in mathematics (Gödel and Turing), nonalgorithmical explanations, new proposals lije that of Roger Penrose, and no lineal systems.

Palabras clave : Brain; physics and mathematics; reduccionism.
