particle-wave duality. It is purely based on experimental evidence of the phenomena scientists have observed.

Electromagnetic radiation shows characteristics of both a wave and a particle.

For further information you might wanna look at the part in the book that explains the photoelectric effect which is essentially used to demonstrate that light exhibits the properties of particles.
Good luck!
