The mechanisation of society

In many ways the industrial revolution was a manifestation of this change. The industrial revolution was a time where our modern values were born. Industry and commerce were slowly becoming the driving force of human existence with the growth in science helping us understand how the world around us functioned (now you can get the idea why the inception sociology was born).

The influence of this mechanisation on the Arts is documented below:
