The fundamental difference between Linnean and cladistic systematicians (in biology) is the the latter believe in classes (ie, assume that they are real) which the former don’t. (A belief Bertrand Russell demonstrated is paradoxically contradictory already in 1901, ie, before the origin of cladistics).
