Nikolai Vladimirovich Stankevich (Russian: Никола́й Влади́мирович Станке́вич) (October 9 [O.S. September 27] 1813 – July 7 [O.S. June 25] 1840) was a Russian public figure, philosopher, and poet.
Nikolay Stankevich was born in Uderevka, Voronezh Governorate, and in 1834 graduated from the Moscow State University, where he was influenced by Professor Mikhail Kachenovsky and followers of the so-called "skeptical school" in historiography. By late 1831, Stankevich had organized a literary and philosophical society called the Circle of Stankevich. He had been under police surveillance since 1833 due to his connections with a group of oppositionary university students led by Ya.I.Kostenetsky. In 1837, Nikolay Stankevich had to travel abroad due to his tuberculosis.
