I have a feeling many people rail against reductionism because of the amalgamating effect the brain has on experience. Things feel distinct and unreducible, reducing it therefore feels unnatural. The feeling of red or falling in love or teenage angst at living in practical world with ideological notions just doesn't seem to break down to chemistry and physics. This is of course irrespective of whether it does or not but hey we're all human I guess.
