Lisp is a multi-paradigm language and the most innovative. It is the most accepting and flexible language of them all. It is the basis for good computer logic. C, C++, and Java are either ugly or verbose. Lisp provides elegant, terse code in which you can bend the language to your own will.
Lisp teaches the logic of computers to novices so when they veer off to an ugly language they can write good code.
