Yes, you can go into the settings (click the little gear icon on the top right), click “inbox” and uncheck all the categories you don’t want. If you uncheck them all, it will stop sorting any of your emails. You might want to try it for a little while though, once you get used to it, you might like it.

How to Disable Gmail Inbox Sorting and Return to the Old Inbox Style
http://osxdaily.com/2013/07/25/disable-gmail-inbox-sorting/

"Gmail recently revised the default inbox to automatically sort inbound emails into several categories that are represented by tabs across the top of the inbox: Primary, Social, Promotions, and Updates. Though this may help to manage some inboxes, it can also be frustrating as some emails are improperly sorted. Additionally, many users prefer to have all new messages in a single inbox without having to click on additional tabs just to see more of their emails, old or new.

With that in mind, let’s walk through disabling the new Gmail inbox automatic sorting and get back to the standard single primary inbox instead."
