[Law's] indeterminacy exists because legal rules derive from structures of Thought....
From my first read to my most recent, I have resisted the claims about law's indeterminacy that rest at the heart of Critical Legal Histories.
However, given the vastness of the indeterminacy literature, I certainly wouldn't want to say that understanding the fine-grained/coarse-grained distinction in terms of some form of indeterminacy is impossible.
It's clear that the coarse-grained/fine-grained distinction can't be spelled out in terms of shallow indeterminacy. Shallow indeterminacy presupposes a world of modally fine-grained objects and then notes that there's no matter of fact, concerning this object o here, which modally fine-grained object it is.
