Abstract:     
My way of honoring Joe today will not be to describe or extol his achievements directly but to try to show something of what I have learned from him, particularly in the way I approach a new text and problem, in this case the creation of authority in one of Augustine's sermons.

As its title reveals, Joe's early book, The Authoritative and the Authoritarian, drew an original distinction that is important to all thought about law, and about more than law: to all thought about any form of social organization, from the family to the church - for all human organization requires authority.
