In the beginning of the novel, we see that Huck practically raises himself and relies on his instincts to guide him through his life on Earth. In the world as Huckleberry Finn views it, society has corrupted the notion of justice and morality to fit the needs of its people in the nation at a particular period of time. In the next various paragraphs, I will show examples of how a society can greatly influence an individual, and sometimes the individual must break off from the accepted values and determine the ultimate truth for themselves.
In the next few decades, psychoanalysis sought to make sense of the trivial, thinkers inquired into the status of the mass-produced object, and the rise of feminist and Labour movements posed the prosaic and essential question of material comforts. Modernist art and literature focused on the mundane, as emblematized by the everyday object, which now crystallized our changing relation to the world.

If we live forever, will this weaken our ability to remember? How does immortality affect processes of forgetting? How does the current obsession with longevity impact upon legal issues such as inheritance?
How does immortality impact on concepts such as the reminiscence bump, Flash Bulb Memory, and information overload? What would impact of the unlimited acquisition of skills and knowledge be on the fallibility of memory? How will the role of memory in shaping the self change in the light of immortality?
