I have refuted the Münchhausen trilemma: The dogmatic argument, which rests on accepted precepts which are merely asserted rather than defended. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%BCnchhausen_trilemma

Stipulating relations between finite strings is the only way that arbitrary finite strings acquire any semantic meaning thus is not merely dogmatic. Language only acquires meaning on the basis of stipulating relations between otherwise arbitrary finite strings.

Although "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet" if we fail to assign any name to {a rose} then we cannot even refer to it.

The relationship between "dog" and "animal" is stipulated to be [is a type of]. The only way to prove that a dog is an animal is through other stipulated relationships.

The foundation of analytical knowledge is based on stipulated relations between otherwise arbitrary finite strings.

This is utter nonsense.

Here are three pictures which may or may not be critters of one sort or another:


Pictures have nothing to do with it.

The otherwise totally meaningless finite strings "dog" is stipulated to

Stipulated, so far as I can tell, by you.  What obliges others to agree?   Are you pressing for a UN resolution perhaps?


You will either be able to understand it on the basis of this seminal paper or it is simply over your head:

https://liarparadox.org/Meaning_Postulates_Rudolf_Carnap_1952.pdf

I am familiar with the paper.

Are you familiar with C's principle of tolerance?


Logical pluralism is the claim that there is more than one adequate logic. Many authors consider Carnap as one of the forerunners of logical pluralism. More than that, they claim that Carnap’s Principle of Tolerance consists in one of the first explicit formulations a logical pluralism. https://philarchive.org/archive/DIACPO-3

It seems irrelevant.
I am saying that the foundation of the body of knowledge that can be fully expressed using language is ultimately anchored in stipulated relations between finite strings.

To convert this to simpler terminology the foundation of the body of knowledge that can be fully expressed using language is ultimately anchored in the assignment of definitions to words.

Foundationalism has been very convincingly (yet incorrectly ) rebutted on the basis that Quine was unable to comprehend that bachelors are unmarried.

https://www.theologie.uzh.ch/dam/jcr:ffffffff-fbd6-1538-0000-000070cf64bc/Quine51.pdf

have the otherwise totally meaningless relation of "is a type of" to the otherwise totally meaningless finite string "animal".
