And the problem with the reductionist view is?
It seeks to dissect reality into pieces,

Right, otherwise there is little use in dissecting. But the very concept of
interacting pieces has its limits in describing reality. Two quantum
entagled particles cannot properly be described as two pieces interacting.
Sure they can, if you allow FTL interactions, as in Bohmian QM. But
even if you don't, the state of the two particles is described by a ray
in Hilbert space or a density matrix - which is pretty reductive.
