In this article, I discuss the constellation of issues that concern the interpersonal nexus of attention. I do so by (1) drawing a distinction between presentation and revelation as modes of givenness, (2) characterizing the emotional life as peculiar to person, and describing person as essentially interpersonal, (3) articulating the phenomenon of exemplarity (a) in distinction to leadership, (b) in terms of its efficacy, (c) with respect to the types of exemplars, and (d) with a view to how they are related to one another. I conclude by (4) delineating the distinctions between perceptual and epistemic attention and interpersonal attention, and rooting the former in the latter.
