    most important of all

    Most important of all, I think, is that we should be interested in it.


    Since "most" here is used to form the superlative, why is there no "the" for the underlined part? Thanks!

    Re: most important of all

    The phrase is an adverb, not an adjective.

    Most importantly (of all), I think we should...
    The most important factor of all is that we should...

    not a teacher

    "Most important" works just fine.
