A burrito is not a sandwich. A wrap is not a sandwich. A hot dog is not a sandwich. A person can call a hotdog a sandwich, and even if that person is understood, it’s still not a sandwich.

How do we know when a sandwich is a sandwich? Can we distinguish sandwiches from non-sandwiches, even when we eat them? And how should we categorize hotdogs, gas-station crackers, burritos? Part detective story, and part seminar in deductive logic, There Exists an X examines the sandwich as object of art, existential interlocutor, and source of unexpected meaning. Jensen challenges the confidence with which we define the commonplace. Sharing historical knowledge and unexpected insights, this manifesto for nominological consistency illuminates the lunch counter with surprising rigor and alacrity. Think you know what a sandwich is?  Prepare to be challenged!
