What is a Framework?

The title question made me struggle for months.

  1. What is a framework?
  2. What is the difference between a library and a framework?
  3. If I use a framework as a library, does it make it a library?
  4. Is Rails a framework?
  5. Is Backbone a framework?
Can you help me with your answers?
