8 Major Influences Scholars from many disciplines:
Nursing (Watson, Boykin, etc.) Anthropology (Leininger and many in program) Sociology (Glasser and Strauss) Economics Physics Philosophy (Hegel, Husserl, Weber, etc.) James (Jim) Droesbeke - inspiration, friend, soul mate, and the love of her life.

9 The Philosophy of Hegel
Greatly influenced Ray’s Work Hegel’s dialectic (way of reasoning) – “interrelationship between thesis, antithesis, and synthesis” Thesis of being Antithesis (opposite) non-being Reconciled emerging (synthesis) into a unitive form of being Ray’s theory Implies that there is a dialectical relationship (thesis, antithesis, and synthesis)between: Thesis of Caring: Human (person and nurse dimensions of spiritual – ethical caring Antithesis of Caring: Organizational (bureaucracy) culture – technological, economic, political, legal, social Synthesized into bureaucratic theory (process is a transformation and it continues to repeat itself – continually changing, emerging and transforming) Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel German idealism Interests were logic, aesthetics, history

10 Ray’s Theory of Bureaucratic caring
Originated as a grounded theory Differential caring emerged as a substantive theory Caring in organizations is complex The meaning of caring is contextual – it varies depending on department and depending upon unit within nursing Caring has different meanings depending on specific goals and values Bureaucratic caring emerged as formal theory – represents the dynamic structure of caring within the complex organization Dissertation Research (1981)involved the use of: Grounded theory methodology to generate theories Phenomenology to determining meaning of the experience Ethnography to study patterns in organizational culture Question – “What is the meaning of caring to you” Substantive theory – middle range level of abstraction. It is specific to the problem or phenomenon and links to higher, more abstract formal theory Differential Caring: Nurses

11 Ray’s Theories Differential Caring Bureaucratic Caring
Caring varies by area or practice Nurses in ICU value technological caring Nurses in oncology value humanistic or spiritual caring Nurses value caring in terms of relationship Administrators value caring in terms of economics, legality, politics etc. Dynamic structure of caring within complex organization Continually evolving and transforming “The logical connectedness of caring to the cosmopolitan social order demonstrates that the Theory of Bureaucratic is unifying rather than alienating” (Ray, 2013)

12 A Study of Caring Within An Institutional Culture
Marilyn Anne Ray 1981 Original Grounded Theory

13 Theory of Bureaucratic Caring 1989

14 Complex Organizational Cultures Ray’s Theory of Bureaucratic Caring
Present Model: Holographic “interconnectedness of all things” Holography means that the whole (implicit order) and the parts (explicit order) are interconnected. Everything is whole in one context and part in another with each part being in the whole and the whole being in the part.

15 Spiritual –Ethical caring
Holism and integration of body, mind, spirit Spirituality of Caring Creativity Choice Revealed in attachment, love, community Ethics of Caring Moral obligation to others Not treating people as a means to an end but rather as people who have the capacity to make choices (Turkel, 2007)

16 Ray’s OnGoing Work Requests from all over the world to use Bureaucratic Theory in professional practice models Ongoing developing of Theory of Bureaucratic Caring Complexity Science/Complexity Theory Transcultural nursing Technological caring Continual enhancement of nursing scholarship Mentorship of others

17 Marilyn (Dee) Ray Caring and love are synonymous. Inquiring about caring touches the heart and translates through the soul, the "speaking together" between the one caring and the one cared for, the shifting of consciousness from a focus on "they" or "I" to a compassionate “we”.
