“In the information age, you don’t teach philosophy you perform it.” That’s the motto of Jason Silva, one of the brightest young thinkers around today. Jason refers to himself as a performance philosopher and has become a modern-day YouTube star. His channel “Shots of Awe” has millions of views from people all over the world who listen intently as he expounds philosophically on the everyday issues of life.
Here, Jason Silva explains his views on the power of ideas, a very important subject matter for him. He claims that if Aristotle were alive today, he wouldn’t reach people on the streets as he did in ancient Greece, but rather through a YouTube channel. If that is correct, then Jason Silva could very well be the modern Aristotle.
