Jason Silva (born February 6, 1982) is a Venezuelan-American television personality, filmmaker, and performance philosopher. He resides in Los Angeles, California and New York City.
Silva earned a degree in film and philosophy from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida. He, along with Max Lugavere, produced and starred in a video documentary/performance piece entitled “Textures of Selfhood”—an experimental film about hedonism and spirituality. “The Party-Philosophers” and “Intellectual Hedonists”, as named by Angeleno Magazine, borrowed the name for the film from the Hedonistic Imperative, a website promoting the end to suffering by philosopher David Pearce.
The Atlantic describes Silva as “A Timothy Leary of the Viral Video Age”.
