Thoughts while writing philosophy...

During the course of writing philosophy essays, i always - always - have a moment where i feel completely, utterly and irretrievably stupid. It's quite disconcerting. I wonder if Nietzsche or Sartre had this problem? Probably not actually. They were probably more worried that they were intelligent, utterly wrong and bucking for a lightning bolt from the heavens with a note attached saying "Bloody smart arse".
