The aim of this article is compare classical concepts with quantum concepts of elementary particles. Atomism, which began as speculative metaphysics, has become a securely established part of experimental science. Therefore, the development of physics during the 20th century may be treated as the spectacular triumph of atomism. However, changes and conceptual difficulties brought about by quantum mechanics lead to the conclusion that the ontological model provided by classical atomism has become inadequate. Atoms (and elementary particles) are not atomos—indivisible, perfectly solid, unchangeable, ungenerated and indestructible (eternal). Classical and quantum concepts of elementary particles turn out to be incommensurable.
