This paper explores the deep relations among six core facets of Western intellectual property studies. The six facets, inherently interdisciplinary, include international relations , history , philosophy , social psychology , economics , and global governance. Putting these facets together reveals a comprehensive and profound landscape of global intellectual property scholarship. But such a scholarship, as this paper argues, can only be further enhanced to meet challenges from new international contexts if an Eastern perspective that brings Chinese culture, history and philosophy into the debate is established.
