Perl 6 Design Philosophy

Randal, Sugalski, and Tötsch:

At the heart of every language is a core set of ideals that give the language its direction and purpose. If you really want to understand the choices that language designers make—why they choose one feature over another or one way of expressing a feature over another—the best place to start is with the reasoning behind the choices

This might be compared to the Zen of Python.
