A Free Book on Slavoj Zizek: "Ontological Catastrophe - Žižek and the Paradoxical Metaphysics of German Idealism" " Ontological Catastrophe: Žižek and the Paradoxical Metaphysics of German Idealism " is a new book written by Joseph Carew and published by OPen Humanities Press.   Ever since the publication of his first book in English, The Sublime Object of Ideology, in , Žižek has become known as one of the most provocative and innovative philosophers in the world.
