This paper has three parts. First, we establish some of the basic model theoretic facts about T, the Tsirelson space of Figiel and Johnson [FJ74]. Second, using the results of the first part, we give some facts about general Banach spaces. Third, we study model-
theoretic dividing lines in some Banach spaces and their theories. In particular, we show: (1) every strongly separable space, such as MT , has the non independence property (NIP); (2) every
@0-categorical space is stable if and only if it is strongly separable; consequently T is not aleph-categorical; equivalently, its first-order theory (in any countable language) does not characterize T, up to isometric isomorphism; (3) every explicitly definable space contains isometric copies of c_0 or `_p.
