The article discusses human development and the various terms related to it such as stage theory, conventional human development, and the practice of human development. There have been many attacks on the stage theory of human development. To understand the variations in the structure of and changes in human development, social considerations should be added to the complex interaction of biological and psychological factors. Conventional human development carries specific political sentiments and its language attests to this. When one attends to social practices and radically turns away from its conventional objects, the practice of human development is made visible.
