Why Is John Austin Influential?

According to Wikipedia, John Austin was an English legal theorist, who posthumously influenced British and American law with an analytical approach to jurisprudence and a theory of legal positivism.

Human legal systems, he claimed, can and should be studied in an empirical, value-free way.
