A ‘schema’ and a ‘class’: a prima facie distinction

Quick post: Michael and I have been talking and we have this question:

Should we integrate talk about classes in relation to schema?

Obviously this is a question of how we define them; but are they releant to be defined in contrast with each other; of course this doesn’t have to be a contradistinctive definition, but defining them in a way in which we cut the cake so we can have both of them as whole pieces.

Our prima facie thought is this:

Class: a list of objects

Schema: a way in which to make lists

So schemata (scheme of schemes) denotes some kind of intentionality or design or rule about the way that classes behave.
