Dr Aviram Ravitsky, with whom I was lucky enough to take a couple of courses when he was still working on his doctorate, has just published his second book, based on aforementioned doctorate. His first book was a critical edition of Sha'are Tsedek, a commentary on the Baraita de-R. Yishma'el often attributed to Gersonides. His new book deals with the larger phenomenon of philosophical commentaries on that Baraita which attempt to align it with the principles of Aristotelian logic. An essay of his on the topic can be found here.
