Dominique Terré, The Happiness of Tragic
In this article, the author analyses the process of Nicolas Grimaldi who, in his book Le Désir et le Temps, shows how much are consubstancially linked the huge, forever delusive expectancy, that we never cease to put into Time, and our enormous want for happiness and plenitude. This always recurring delusion and this fundamental wish for life made the greatest philosophies, and inspire Nicolas Grimaldi's Philosophy.

Key Words : Grimaldi, happiness, tragic
