Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all. My first post. I hope I posted in the right section.

I watched ep 1 of these old videos lecture by Richard Feynman and wondering if it's still valid. Or should I take on his ideas and formula my own understand from all possible views. Or how should I learn this subject.

Because as a rookie trying to grasp quantum physics, he states light is a particle when at high school we are still taught light is a wave. :S.

Well, quantum mechanics ties the particle-wave duality of photons, which have both wave-like and particle-like qualities. First year chem in university will teach you quantum physics, and I'm sure senior high school courses touch on it.
