Abstract

Il est toujours extrêmement difficile de résumer la vie d’un homme que l’on a croisé à une époque particulière de sa propre existence et dont on a partagé les enthousiasmes et les déceptions jusqu’à dépasser cette relation du maître à l’élève dont l’alchimie est si particulière, si délicate qu’il serait présomptueux d’en amorcer ici l’explication. Il s’agit néanmoins d’un fait, objectif, brut : le regard que nous allons poser sur l’homme et sur l’oeuvre n’est pas libre de tout sentiment. Nous avons admiré l’esprit, la ténacité, la rigueur scientifiques de celui dont nous avons aimé l’humanité, l’exigence et la chaleur. La difficulté de la tâche réside précisément en la construction d’une biographie qui n’exagère pas les qualités sous peine d’en discréditer l’énoncé et qui n’amenuise pas les défauts sous peine d’édulcorer le portrait jusqu’à l’affadir.
