KFSA, for example, holds safety meetings for elevator operators and conducts tours to familiarize firefighters with tunnels in the event there is a fire.
and utters, when he expresses himself decisively, nothing but contradictions (lauter Widerspruche) (KFSA 2:243; Fragments, 83, TM).
Since irony is the place where opposites come into contact with each other (it is "the form of paradox": Lyceum Fragment 48, KFSA 2:153; Fragments, 6), it also constitutes the possibility of achieving some sort of link with infinity.
Perhaps the most explicit reference to this question is found in one of the unpublished "Philosophical Fragments" Schlegel wrote in 1798 after the publication of the Athenaum fragments: "Irony is so to speak the |Epsilon~|Pi~|Iota~|Delta~|Epsilon~|Iota~|Xi~|Iota~|Zeta~ of the infinite, of universality, of the sense for the universe" (KFSA 18:128).
Idee 69, KFSA 2:263).(8) "Only that kind of confusion is a chaos"--defines Schlegel--"out of which a world can arise" (Idee 71, KFSA 2:263).
In its refusal to be tied down to a meaning the text becomes infinite, "within its limits limitless and inexhaustible," in Schlegel's formulation (Athenaum Fragment 297, KFSA 2:215; Fragments, 59, TM).
This has become a commonplace of Schlegel criticism.(9) Schlegel himself, however, seems to have taken his own warning that "irony is something one simply cannot play games with" ("Uber die Unverstandlichkeit," KFSA 2:370; Wheeler, 37) more seriously than some of his critics, and to have been well aware of the difficulties that the attempt to use irony for one's own purposes can produce.
Es ist ein sehr gutes Zeichen, wenn die harmonisch Platten gar nicht wissen, wie sie diese stete Selbstparodie zu nehmen haben, immer wieder von neuem glauben und miBglauben, bis sie schwindlicht werden, den Scherz gerade fur Ernst, und den Ernst fur Scherz halten (KFSA 2:160).
Suddenly it becomes difficult to see the difference between the "harmonious bores" (those who consider irony deception) and the voice of the fragment, which should represent the ironist since it says confidently and somewhat scornfully: "To a person who hasn't got it, |Socratic irony~ will remain a riddle even after it is openly confessed" (KFSA 2:160; Fragments, 13).
Thus, for example, in the Gesprach uber die Poesie (Dialogue on Poetry): "Even in quite popular genres, for example in drama, we require irony: we require that the events, the people, in short the whole play |Spiel~ of life should be taken and represented as play |Spiel~" (KFSA 2:323),(23) or in the much quoted posthumous fragment that defines: "Irony is a permanent parabasis |eine permanente Parekbase~--" (KFSA 18:85).

It functions as a synonym for "Demonstration" and "Beweis" (in contrast to "Darstellung" as linguistic representation) in the context of discussions of philosophical writing (e.g., in KFSA 18:35) and can be found later in association with terms like "Mimos" (KFSA 16:54) and "Nachmachen" (KFSA 16:55).
