The article contains scientific argumentation of social and labor development of the first half of the 21ST century, which is increasingly acquiring features of instability and human(non)centricity. The quintessence of the presented theoretical and applied discourse is the substantiation of the need to overcome economic centrism, increase the role and importance of uneconomic factors of sustainable social progress in ensuring balanced social and labor development in the new socio-economic reality; The authors' construct of moral, ethical, spiritual, cultural dimension of competitive advantages in the context of dialectical unity of the economic and non-economic. The article is aimed at promoting a fundamental rethinking of the philosophy of sustainable social and labor development, which is centered on the priority of attitudes, values, beliefs of a moral, spiritual, ethical, solidarity, socially responsible, socio-cultural nature, which are conventionally called uneconomic and should become the leading pillars of the new digital world of economy and the world of the people themselves. The methodological research platform is an organic combination of systemic and interdisciplinary approaches using general scientific and special research methods. The worldview failures in understanding the non-economic aspects of human life in digital age are highlighted; the emphasis is placed on the distorted view of the role, place, and mission of the non-economic in ensuring sustainable development. The necessity of using a new conceptology, a new development strategy based on the principles of human-centrism is substantiated; the potential of solidarity and consolidation in network forms of interaction between subjects of social relations is proven. The range of phenomena and processes that act as "clots" on the way to sustainable social and labor development based on trust, inclusion, cohesion, solidarity, consolidation, responsibility, culture in its broadest sense is outlined, and, on the contrary, the factors that increase the role of the non-economic in ensuring sustainable social and labor development and overcoming the deepest crisis of our time are identified. The authors argue that the "new science", the new economic theory of social progress, facilitated by published foundations, must offer a different philosophy, different principles, and drivers of sustainable social and labor development, which are almost the exact opposite of the dominant postulates of growth, which is often not accompanied by development.
