7.4 Meta-Objects

The implementation of the object system manipulates classes, methods, and generic functions. The object system contains a set of generic functions defined by methods on classes; the behavior of those generic functions defines the behavior of the object system. The instances of the classes on which those methods are defined are called meta-objects.
