Student or Learner
Hi could someone please help explain about sentence I found,
Marshall McLuhan, who came closer than most to seeing what was coming, warned, “When things come at you very fast, naturally you lose touch with yourself.
The "to seeing" after "than most" made me confused whether to use preposition or infinitive. I think the "to" here should be a preposition because V-ing (seeing).
Can we use the infinitive "to see" instead? Or if any different between using preposition or infinitive here in grammar or meaning wise?
Thanks a lot
To here is a preposition and to see doesn't work for me.
