United Nation Development Program has announced the 20th Human Development Report in 2010 .This Report is devoted to rethinking of human development. In this article we review the changes in this concept during the last 20 years and analyze the view points of Mahbub Ul Haq and Amartya Sen. Then we focus on Inglehart and Welzel's ideas that provide explanation of human development process. The research findings show that the concept of human development not only affects the goals and policies of development but also it influences the understanding of development process. However the liner explanations of Inglehart and Welzel from human development do not cover the whole subject. In real world conditions, socioeconomic development, cultural change and democratization are interwoven processes and one cannot say that human development begins with one of them and we believe that interdisciplinary research will be helpful to better understanding of these processes.
