Racket is a general-purpose, multi-paradigm programming language based on the Scheme dialect of Lisp. It is designed as a platform for programming language design and implementation.
Just so, is racket a Scheme?
Racket is a fork of Scheme, the simple language at the core of this course for many years. Scheme was created primarily as an experiment in understanding how programming languages work. Racket retains its basic favor, but it also adds many, many features that make the language useful in the 21st century.
Also question is, which is better Haskell or Lisp?
As we already know that Lisp stand for list processing, which commonly means that it uses list as its primary data structure. Some of the features which are provide by Haskell which make it better choice to use over Java, C and other programming like: modularity, laziness, functional language, maintainability etc.
Why is Clojure not a Lisp?
Clojure is a Lisp-1 and is not intended to be code-compatible with other dialects of Lisp, since it uses its own set of data structures incompatible with other Lisps. As a Lisp dialect, Clojure supports functions as first-class objects, a read–eval–print loop (REPL), and a macro system.

Racket is what is called a functional programming language. It treats functions, variables and numbers in a way very similar to math, which makes comprehending program behavior easier for students with little to no programming background.
How To Design Programs is published for Racket. It’s actually quite a good book, and the stuff that comes with it are useful for a ton of personal programming. It makes learning other, more popular, languages easier.
