**Abstract:**

Boscovich when dealing with Newton's corpuscular theory of light used the
Latin term “quantum”, from this modern physics adopted using the term “quantum” with its so-called Quantum Revolution. So really Quantum physics is derived from Newtonian physics. The main difference is that Einstein took a heuristic approach – i.e. guessing, and so introduced errors. Thus modern quantum physics comes from Newtonian physics with addition of Einstein's errors into the mix.
