Corpuscular Philosophy is Newton`s theory that all nature is particulate, even light. Quantum mechanics says that all nature is waves or fields that sometimes behave like particles when different waves interact with nonlinearity. Quantum mechanics is actually closer to Berkeley since electrons only have a probability of existing at any one place. There is no such thing as the path of electrons around a nucleous in quantum mechanics. So essentially quantum mechanics incorporates both particles and waves in a theoretical framework. One might even say that it agrees with both.
