About this title

Synopsis:

Now in paperback -- a groundbreaking effort to find meaning in the disintegration of Western culture by looking through the lenses of economics, philosophy, art, physics, ecology, and spirituality.

From the Publisher:

"Mona Lisa's Moustache is a deligtful and insightful book. In this brief work, Settegast manages to give us a fresh and compelling overview of the postmodern sense of the world without the usual dose of nihilism and despair. Her book is in fact something of a celebration as she finds in the dissolution of form the emergence of a new form of consciousness, at once playful and open to the full richness and depth of the world. In her inviting style, postmodern sensibility even becomes the possibility of a spiritual renaissance."—Robert D. Romanyshyn, author of Technology as Symptom and Dream

"Mary Settegast has written a lucid gem of a book, which challenges each of us to cultivate an openness to contradictory beliefs and a Cubist perspective of multidimensional seeing, so that we may better understand and cope with our chaotic, turbulent times. Her wisdom comes highly recommended."—Suzi Gablik, author of The Reenchantment of Art

"Welcome to the prismatic world, where what you see, believe in, and act upon depends on what happens to be lighting up at the moment. This is the world now upon us as brilliantly described by Mary Settegast. Modern art saw it first, and utilizing the creative imagination as a clue, this wondrous book paints six equally valid landscapes of culture and human life, challenging us to deeply appreciate that the soul of the world speak in multiplicity. All that seems to be breakdown—of beliefs, ways of knowing, tradition, the way the world is supposed to work—are also breakthroughs for those who let many world reveal themselves to imagination."—Robert Sardello, author of Facing the World with Soul
