Explain and critically evaluate the main claims of postmodernism. Within sociology there is much debate surrounding the era that society has now entered. Some social theorists argue that we should abandon theories of modernity, since society has progressed forward from the times of Marx, Durkheim and Weber, and that theories of modernity are no longer valid.

This research paper will explore and investigate the development and advancement of the Gatling Machine gun from the time period between 1865 and 1890. Also to be included in the investigation, are the new types of tactics that were created and introduced to help the utilize this new weapon. This paper will show that while the firearms technology advanced, the tactics surrounding the implementation of this new weapon were lacking, caused by general maintenance issues, and certain military official reluctance to use these large unconventional weapons for the time.

Fears in society will always alter as time progresses however. This idea is further exemplified through the symbolism of Tyrell’s oversized glasses.
