Latin term or phrase:Dr. h.c.
Dr. h.c. = doctorate in ....? The man in question works in the fields of aesthetics, and theory of design (fine arts). He is quite accomplished, and has studied German literature, philosophy, art history, dramaturgy, and political science. He has received an honorary doctorate. The H might stand for "honorary", but I don't speak German at all, so I won't venture a guess.
