In this conference we aim to provide an overview of Husserl’s reflection on the nature of mathematical symbols and their role in the constitution of mathematical objectivity. The problem will be addressed first of all historically, by putting Husserlian phenomenology within a broader context of reflection on the role of symbols in mathematics. Moreover, more systematical issues will be discussed, concerning the role played by the phenomenological method in the clarification of the relationship between evidence and symbols and in the functioning of symbols in mathematics in general.
