The R. Feynman's "heretical" approach to deriving the Lorentz force based Maxwell electromagnetic equations is revisited, its complete legacy is argued both by means of the geometric considerations and its deep relation with the vacuum field theory approach devised recently by the authors. Being completely classical, we reanalyze the Feynman's derivation from the classical Lagrangian and Hamiltonian points of view and construct its nontrivial relativistic generalization compatible with the vacuum field theory approach.
