Hello,
I would like to know if here, in this sentence, the expression 'of the hour' does mean 'of the moment' or something like this:
' ... who called him " communication theory's man OF THE HOUR...'

Thanks in advance, An

It probably means 'of the moment'. Can you give us more context?

Usually when we say "man of the hour" it is the person we are honoring right now at this occasion for his or her contribution to a particular field.....the person we recognize as an "expert". In this case, my guess is that the writer isn't too fond of the person in question and is being somewhat sarcastic.....that is, if the original is in the form of a question.

Time magazine has an edition at the end of the year featuring "person of the year".
