To be in the center or to be at the center

English Language & Usage Asked by john333 on November 2, 2020

  • I want to be in the center of the change.

  • I want to be at the center of the change.

In the context, the statement makes that I want to be at the center of the changing society, I want to play an important role.

Which preposition do I need?

One Answer

At means place, position. So I'd say at the centre of change, or like you phrase it "at the centre of the changing society".

In means inside a whole or a context, or a situation, a phenomenon maybe. So I'd say in change, in society etc.

I think one should follow his physical understanding in such things.
