Denotational semantics is easy and natural for Lisp hackers, since it's
all objects and functions. A corollary is that it gets hairy for Lisp
when one starts doing destructive ops and nonlocal jumps, so formal
definitions of Common Lisp are hard to find... Stoy's book is a good
one, although some dislike it because it's not sufficiently precise...

I've never found a really solid justification for their existence...
