The search of epistemic justification for the most basic methodological and axiological presuppositions of science has to deal with Agrippa's trilemma. It is argued that infinite regress - even if it is only a potential regress - and circularity are not the best alternatives of the trilemma and that the best disjunct is a minimalist dogmatism, with the following conditional, as one of its dogmas: If our most basic methodological and axiological scientific presuppositions (as well as our observational statements) were the correct ones, then the scientific theories selected by these presuppositions would be the probably, or the approximately, true ones.
Keywords : epistemic justification; infinite regress; circularity; dogmatism; pyrrhonian scepticism; relativism.
