Nikola Stojkoski was born in Bitola, the Republic of Macedonia, in 1980. He earned a degree in philosophy from the University of Saints Cyril and Methodius in Skopje, Macedonia, in 2006. Since graduating, he has worked as a school teacher while continuing to develop his philosophical ideas. In a competition organized by the Philosophical Society of Macedonia and “AZ-Buki” publishing house, his essay “Solving the paradox of clocks within the classical theory” was awarded the prize for the best philosophical essay. The essay was later published by the philosophical portal “Akindin” in 2011. His most recent essay "Reason as ability for identification and differentiation" was presented at the 2017 Philosophical Society of Macedonia symposium "ΛOΓΟΣ and ΤΡOΠΟΣ." His current research interests include the theory of perception, metaphysics, the theory of beauty, and meta-ethics.
