We discuss some features of the Decoherent Histories approach. We consider four assumptions, the first three being in our opinion necessary for a sound interpretation of the theory, while the fourth one is accepted by the supporters of the DH approach, and we prove that they lead to a logical contradiction. We discuss the consequences of relaxing any one of them.
