Common Lisp vs Haskell: What are the differences?

Common Lisp: The modern, multi-paradigm, high-performance, compiled, ANSI-standardized descendant of the long-running family of Lisp programming languages. Lisp was originally created as a practical mathematical notation for computer programs, influenced by the notation of Alonzo Church's lambda calculus. It quickly became the favored programming language for artificial intelligence (AI) research. As one of the earliest programming languages, Lisp pioneered many ideas in computer science, including tree data structures, automatic storage management, dynamic typing, conditionals, higher-order functions, recursion, and the self-hosting compiler. [source: wikipedia]; Haskell: An advanced purely-functional programming language. .

Common Lisp and Haskell can be categorized as "Languages" tools.

"Flexibility" is the primary reason why developers consider Common Lisp over the competitors, whereas "Purely-functional programming " was stated as the key factor in picking Haskell.

thoughtbot, DoxIQ, and Wagon are some of the popular companies that use Haskell, whereas Common Lisp is used by Real Softservice, NG Informática, and Platform Project. Haskell has a broader approval, being mentioned in 33 company stacks & 47 developers stacks; compared to Common Lisp, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to Common Lisp and Haskell?
Clojure
Clojure is designed to be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system.
Racket
It is a general-purpose, multi-paradigm programming language based on the Scheme dialect of Lisp. It is designed to be a platform for programming language design and implementation. It is also used for scripting, computer science education, and research.
Python
Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
PHP
Fast, flexible and pragmatic, PHP powers everything from your blog to the most popular websites in the world.
JavaScript
JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
