Abstract. The article discusses certain generalized stages of economic development, which are characterized by various forms of domination of production, technology, management, ownership, labor quality, dynamics of economic phenomena and processes. The emergence and spread of new technologies, at the beginning of the first tillage tools, then the steam engine, internal combustion engine, electricity and more recently telecommunication technologies are often laid as the foundation of the era. The work emphasizes that quantitative changes also lead to qualitative changes that radically change human activity in all its forms and manifestations, thereby transforming human labor. In addition, the article highlights the idea of transformation as a process in a broad sense, and then describes the transformation of labor itself. Particular attention is paid to the development of human society and the economy, which is characterized by the expansion and deepening of relations between economic entities, optimization and reduction of various types of costs for the creation of goods, expansion of borders and increased access to information. At the same time, there are changes in the mechanisms and principles of production and exchange, which are becoming much more complicated. The article discusses various approaches to the study of the development of society, as well as concepts explaining the peculiarities of labor transformation.
