A "large "De-construction" of the great Ranke. Remarks on G. J. Henz's magnum opus. In 2014 Henz published the most relevant issue on Ranke's life, work and reception. In this note the author stresses the assets of Henz's huge feat, that turns out ot be a basic tool for research on Ranke and the entire German historical culture and scholarship. Nevertheless, the choice to treat Ranke as a historical object by means of a strict philological method does not automatically lead to a better understanding of his achivement.
