  Human development theory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Human development theory is an economic theory that merges older ideas from ecological economics, sustainable development, welfare economics, and feminist economics.
This question cannot be answered strictly from an energy, feminist, family, environmental health, peace, social justice, or ecological well-being point of view, although all of these may be factors in our happiness, and if tolerances of any of these are violated seriously, it would seem impossible to be happy at all.
Accordingly, human development theory is a major synthesis that is probably not confined within the bounds of conventional economics or political science, nor even the political economy that relates the two.

 :: Sustainable Human Development :: Introduction to SHD   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Development that is achieved at the expense of the poorer, or which increases the riches of certain social segments at the expense of others, or that which suppresses freedoms or disturbs the social or political balances, is the antithesis of sustainable human development.
Hence, the link between economic development and human life should, by necessity, be a general, enlightened policy that starts and ends with the human being and society, and not with the growth in numbers, in spite of their importance.
Since the strategies of fulfilling human development are concentrated on effecting changes in the legal and institutional environment in which humans live, the basis remains widening human choices, and therefore expanding the space of human freedom, which includes, but is not restricted to, the economic dimension of development.

Developing and nurturing human resources comprises addressing issues related to demographic problems, unemployment, health care, nutrition, shelter, construction development, the environment, and vocational training and education, to an extent exceeding human- related issues that touch on productivity directly, as is the case with the human capital concept.
Sustainable human development is a perception that addresses development in a manner that pays special attention to the distribution of its benefits, its social and environmental effects, its viability and ability to advance with the efforts of its beneficiaries.
The basis of sustainable human development is not only materialistic well-being, but rather raising the cultural standard of people, permitting them to live a fuller life, or to practice their talents and raise the level of their capabilities.

 Funderstanding - Piaget
Piaget's theory is based on the idea that the developing child builds cognitive structures--in other words, mental "maps," schemes, or networked concepts for understanding and responding to physical experiences within his or her environment.
During all development stages, the child experiences his or her environment using whatever mental maps he or she has constructed so far.
If the experience is a repeated one, it fits easily--or is assimilated--into the child's cognitive structure so that he or she maintains mental "equilibrium." If the experience is different or new, the child loses equilibrium, and alters his or her cognitive structure to accommodate the new conditions.
