46 But what are the components of irony, how does it work, and of what use might it be to understanding AIDS legal discourse? IRONIC JURISPRUDENCE 35 White writes that “Irony, Metonymy, and Synecdoche are kinds of Metaphor, but they differ from one another in the kinds of reductions or integrations they effect on the literal level of their meanings by the kinds of illuminations they aim at on the figurative level. ”47 The ironic expression affirms on one level what it denies on the other, the literal and the figurative conflict.

Within this discursive space some things are foregrounded and made central, while others are denied or occluded through the silences that open up among those same speech acts. 60 It is not surprising that AIDS legal scripts should rely on these same erratic but predictable schemas. Throughout the past IRONIC JURISPRUDENCE 41 twenty-five years AIDS worked in much the same way that Foucault described sexuality: not as something that was repressed, but as something that was spoken of endlessly with an increasingly specific vocabulary accompanied by elaborate technologies of compulsion.

7 The theory of ironic jurisprudence developed here incorporates these insights. More pointedly, consciousness here encompasses not only legality, but also sexuality and its place in the construction of AIDS. The ways that the world works, what is possible, what is not, and allocations of resources— specifically within this single issue area—are things we can know through the schemas that emerge from the interaction of judges, litigants, experts, and witnesses in the institutional setting of the courts.
