### On the Ideal Objectivity of Mathematical Symbols

What is the nature of the ideal objectivity of mathematical symbols? Are mathematical symbols universal and beyond the problem of translation, leaving behind the Babel of ordinary languages? Is a Platonic philosophy of mathematics thus viable? Or is it, contrary to popular belief, possible to rigorously deconstruct mathematics? There is a sense in which Derrida seems to grant mathematics immunity from the work of deconstruction, often alluding to the formality of mathematical symbolization as a means to transgress the untenable metaphysics that springs from logocentric discourses bound to phonocentrism.
