Was wondering this morning what other programming paradigms there are (I'm putting OO into the imperative category.) For example, I think "asynchronous" might fit into this list, but what it really begs for is a definition of what this list actually is - I'm not happy with the word "paradigm". So, I have two questions - first, can you come up with a more concrete definition of this list, rather than just the word "paradigm", and what else do you think fits into this list?
You could look at this post[^] but I don't think it contributed anything much to the actual question (though lots of good discussion on the 3 paradigms), and one person replied "Are there more exotic types? Not yet."
What would make another type, exotic? Seems like an attempt to promote something because of it's properties rather than it's usefullness.
As far as another word for paradigm, it could be replaced with philosophy, dogma, religion(?). I'm too much of a practical programmer, so it's just another word that won't help solve things. Do people really look at a problem and decide what paradigm would best be used to solve it?
