Can anything be so common as a sandwich? Two slices of bread and a filling. Everyone knows a sandwich when they see one. But what of the quesadilla, the pizza slice, a hot dog, a birthday cake? Are these sandwiches, too? Using the methodology of deductive logic, with charming illustrations provided by Ginny Maki, Jensen looks at the sandwich as object of art, existential interlocutor, and source of unexpected meaning. There Exists an X formally delineates our everyday experience of sandwiches. In doing so, Jensen poses a fundamentally philosophical question about definitions and logic. Everyone thinks they know what a sandwich is but we do not generally talk about it. Here is someone who really does want to talk about sandwiches?not generally but in specific detail. And in doing so Jensen provides an entertaining way of viewing the logic and mathematical quality of human experience. What do we see in the gas station crackers? Something familiar? Something illustrative? Something meaningful?
