German philosopher Habermas rejects UAE’s Zayed Book Award

German philosopher Juergen Habermas has reversed an earlier decision to accept a literary award from the UAE. The 91-year-old, considered Germany’s most eminent contemporary philosopher, said, ’I didn’t sufficiently make clear to myself the very close connection of the institution, which awards these prizes in Abu Dhabi, with the existing political system there.’
